I’ve become so lazy that I couldn’t finish even an aphorism…
When one reaches 40, s/he starts writing bitter aphorisms.
I write down whatever crosses my mind… And sometimes I’m just lazy.
The way to crack myself up: by reading a few of my aphorisms!
The main problem, which would take most of the time, regarding these aphorisms is going to be to systematize them.
F.M. Dostoyevsky said once that he admires better his wrong ideas than others’ correct ones. Fyodor, my brother!
As a student, I was keeping notes very diligently, especially in philosophy and psychology classes. The problem was that I couldn’t read them later, since a have very bad handwriting. It took me a long time to stop taking them.
When I was younger, I was writing poetry (like all other sensitive souls on this planet). Needless to say, I wasn’t much of a poet. But, that wasn’t the reason I stopped writing poetry: the real reason is that I’ve realized that I wasn’t going to intentionally limit the room for my thoughts, by putting them into pre-defined forms.
