New Aphorism

Lionel Deimel’s Farrago includes a page of original aphorisms. I added a new entry today, and I think it is one of my better ones:

Unlike some of my pearls of wisdom, this one is not so much the product of philosophical musings as of actual experience.

You can read all my aphorisms here.

  1. Why do I suddenly feel guilty?


  2. The formulation was based on many experiences over the years, including those in which I was a colleague.
