Wittgenstein

If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein

Wittegenstein’s birthday today. Famous for his brilliant logic, some of my favourite wisdom of his is the counterintuitive embrace of stupidity.

  • “Our greatest stupidities may be very wise.”

He also embraced the failure of knowing…

  • “Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving oneself.”
  • “If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.”
