Happy World Philosophy Day-2012


Thursday, 15 November 2012.

The Society for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (SPPIS), Haryana conveys best wishes on the occasion of World Philosophy Day.

Happy World Philosophy Day

UNESCO celebrates philosophy every year on the third Thursday in November. “In 2012, the World Philosophy Day will be held for the tenth time, with events being organized at the international, national and local levels. They will enable their participants to share a multitude of views and experiences, fully respecting cultural diversity, with regard to the main theme of the 2012 World Philosophy Day which is “Future Generations”.

He is one of the world’s best known names, yet we know very little about him. Here are some of his beautiful quotes:

 “By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”

“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”

“If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.”

Best wishes on this very occasion and enjoy this beautiful moment with a dedication towards creation of knowledge..
