“I think that I think…”

I found this quote in the Free Dictionary which I visit quite often.

Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum.

think that I think, therefore think that am.

I love it!Grin.gif

These words belong to Ambrose Bierce, an American journalist, writer, satirist.

Have you heard of him? Do you know anything about his connection with the Devil? 😈

Have you read Bierce’s ‘Devil’s Dictionary’?

Look at his definition of the word ‘elector’:

ELECTOR, n. One who enjoys the sacred privilege of voting for the man of another man’s choice.

Amazing, he started his ‘Dictionary’ in 1881, but it is still quite topical.

I don’t want to sound pessimistic but paraphrasing a famous saying I can conclude that time changes but we fail to change with them. 😁
