Life Philosophy


A C Grayling is amusing and sharp, as a writer and philosopher. His ‘This much I know’ in the Observer last Sunday was witty and thought-provoking. Here are a couple of the best:

A human lifespan is less than a thousand months long. You need to make some time to think how to live it.

At last we move beyond the cod! (literally and figuratively) AC Grayling has a disturbing look of Michael Heseltine, must be the hair. Off to look at a tree now.

Yes, and both fond of trees. He also looks very like Gerry Ryan, though that should probably be the other way round.

I was rather fond of the cod piece, but you’re right, go to keep things moving!

Perhaps Greta has more appeal for you!! I approve of the sentiments expressed though. She was on TV the other day about growing old gracefully but I can’t help thinking that photo might have been subject to a little airbrushing. She’s the same age as me for goodness sake so if she really looks like that I’m a bit depressed!!!
