No.

hopetheturtle on 2011-09-30 10:03:54
Wisdom is not an inspiration but a virtue that one is either born with or eventually learns over time. Of course some people never become owls.

kb77 on 2011-10-20 15:54:03
substitute 'wisdom' with 'greed'. now THAT makes some sense!!

wvwoman on 2012-07-16 20:41:07
how does the raven eating make him greedy?

WRQ9 on 2013-11-17 10:44:38
Or, da wiz. This might show insight if the "raven" would in most circumstances never turn to carrion again. "Nevermore".

LLapp on 2015-05-25 09:49:37
This quote sounds like a close-up view of Nietzsche's mind going mad -- suspecting even his own wisdom of being some horrid nightmare.

Mobo on 2015-10-12 02:41:01
In other words, we wise up after we nearly destroy ourselves. Is that why the league of nations and the UN were created? And look how they both succeeded, not!

Doth quote the raven... "Carrion my wayward son." I think he said that in Kansas somewhere.

universalmom on 2016-10-02 14:16:20
Hahaha, second time you've cracked me up tonight Barnabas!

darkyr on 2017-02-22 06:04:39
Yes, of course, it must be, because it all makes sense now.

Persephone59 on 2017-04-15 13:23:50
This quote is a new low. But the comments are funny, especially Barnabas'.

Persephone59 on 2017-05-27 07:40:54
Well that was a pretty dark quote, even for Nietzsche.
barnabas--i, too, appreciate your kansas comment--it is priceless!

I couldn't rake to get this one finished.

Rake: a fashionable or wealthy man of dissolute or promiscuous habits. Huh.

highbrow on 2016-08-23 06:29:36
Rake. I had to try each remaining letter one at a time to figure out the K.

"If music is the pathway to the heart, as Voltaire suggested, then speech is the pathway to other people. Live in silence and you live alone."
Henry Bromell

nevadasmith68 on 2013-08-10 20:39:10
Voltaire invented the car battery. Untill then a car ran by a hampster running in a wheel that turned the axle.

LLapp on 2014-12-10 14:16:40
Thanks for the research, nevada, but I'm pretty sure Voltaire invented the automatic transmission.

marnita on 2016-06-03 10:53:27
And the hamsters are still running the Kia Soul.

wolf on 2016-06-26 11:11:27
No. Voltaire invented the spray pump used for the windshield washer.

I thought he had something to do with the Chevy Volt.

oddcouple on 2016-09-23 00:00:52
With a name like Voltaire, it has to be an air conditioner.

"Falling in love consists merely in uncorking the imagination and bottling the common-sense. "
Helen Rowland

Where can I get a jug of common-sense?

universalmom on 2015-06-30 13:25:48
Fizzy stuff

darkyr on 2017-01-17 02:48:53
It's always on back-order at my grocery store.

skeeter on 2017-03-17 02:56:24
You can get it at the Five-and-Ten Sense store.

so a prosecutor and an undertaker go into a bar...

obsessedreader8 on 2017-01-06 02:30:27
50 seconds.

kb83 on 2017-04-25 02:11:11
Funny, universalmom. The prosecutor says, "you prosecuting any burials? The undertaker says, "yeah, you undertaking any criminal cases? "

"The brighter you are, the more you have to learn."
Don Herold

gryhnd51 on 2014-04-11 18:38:37
In my own experience, the brighter you are the more your supervisors/bosses will EXPECT you to learn. This expectation is a wonderful thing for both your work life and your personal life, and should be appreciated.

obsessedreader8 on 2014-05-31 15:59:54
Love the photo of Herold!

mikehallbackhoe on 2014-07-21 17:42:35
I guess I still have a lot to learn
