Most of my posts here at RJsCorner come from what I have read. Many times the article is several thousand words long, and my task is to glean from that the most important lessons that I might pass on to you, my readers. Over my lifetime I have loved psychology and philosophy type things. Some really grab my attention, but then there are others that are way out there, even for me. For instance, thoughts like “Is my computer that I am currently typing on real or is it a figment of my mind?” or even worse, “Am I a figment of my mind?” Yeah, there are philosophers who spend thousands of words actually discussing these type thoughts. 🤪
But, then it comes to things like:
- Why am I here?
- What is my purpose in life?
- What is important to me?
- What makes me happy?
These types of esoteric questions have fascinated me since early childhood. Yeah, I was a weird kid! Of course, these thoughts are the foundation of my blog which concentrates on
Think For Yourself / Question Everything / Never Stop Learning
I have little patience for the run-on folks who spend pages and even books on things that can be summarized in paragraphs or less.
So, I write CliffNotes of sorts. Discussing deep subjects in “500 words or less”, is sometimes a daunting challenge, but I am most often up to it, or at least I think I am? Your views are a judgment of that. One of my goals in doing these short summaries is to get you guys interested in some new subjects so that you will never stop learning. Like Socrates, the more I learn, the more I realize that I know nothing.
The more you know, the more you realize how much I don’t know…

Yup. Taking that many wordy pages shows how little the writer understands the ideas written about.
So true, MQ. My wife was a big fiction reader, but Except for Steinbeck, Jack London, and a few others in my youth, I never got into that genre. Almost everything I have read in the last 30 years has been biography, autobiography, historical, philosophical, and religious in nature. But I guess you could say some of those were pretty fictional. 😎
