At the Crossroads

My nephew is at a crossroads. He’s entering college and can’t decide on a major. I suggested philosophy. I said that as a philosopher you never have to be right. You make suggestions, have opinions, speak extemporaneously and don’t have to concern yourself with facts. There is only one exception. You have to know how to spell “Nietzsche”. And if you can grow a mustache like him, that’ll guarantee you a job.

The Philosopher

Plato said “Questioning people on their deathbed leaves us with many unanswered questions and the sudden realization that now we can never collect the money owed us.”
