To believe is to know you believe, and to know you believe is not to believe.

– Jean-Paul Sartre

    I have no idea what this means. Though I am fascinated that you’re already on Google’s second page for this search string. As I searched for what it meant, I found only endless websites offering up mounds of such disembodied quotes.

    I wonder if Sartre would delight in being quoted so frequently by folks who don’t know what he means. Maybe there’s a point in there somewhere.

    Not to say that you don’t know what it means, or that knowing or not knowing what it means is worthy of ridicule.

    David, perhaps I was just being snarky. I don’t doubt that ol’ JP would get a kick out of this quote taken out of context. Or maybe that is the point. Or maybe I’m just making fun of Sartre.

    I am feeling a bit nausious. And speaking of banks, member this?

    “Today you’re gonna be so sick so sick
    you’ll prop your forehead on the sink
    say oh christ oh jesus christ
    my head’s gonna crack like a bank tonight
    you’ll fall asleep in clothes-so late
    like a candy bar wrapped up for lunch
    that’s all you get to taste poverty and spit
    poverty and spit
    nausea bloody red eyes go to nausea
    bloody red eyes go to nausea
    bloody red eyes go to sleep
    you’re talking out of harmony
    you can’t remember what you said
    cut it out you feel retarded
    take the sissors saw the head”

    Sartre was a comic masquerading as a philosopher or a philosopher masquerading as a comic.

    All Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
