“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.”
