Behind every impossibility, there is an atom of possibility. Of a little wonder, some of the things which are now possible were impossible once upon a time, but someone like us made them possible. The solution to problems and life challenges depends on our capability to think. The difference between philosophers and non-philosophers is the ability to create ideas and Knowledge change and odify some culations one’s own thinking similar to those treated by previous philo- sophers. Real philosophers think beyond the way we think.
Why do we call people philosophers? It’s simply because the pen is mightier than the sword. That’s to say, wisdom is better than strength. In every existing problem, there’s a solution. It depends on our ability to think it out. It’s not a question of physical fitness! Think out a way to solve problems and see who you become. Life is a comedy to them that think and a tragedy to them that feel. There is al- ways a way of overwheming difficulties, all it cost
is nothing but to think. Wisdom speaks louder than words.
Nowadays, things are really falling apart, in the sens that some philosophical students have choosen to in- dulge in all types of exam malpratices. Alas, in our generation, stolen fruit is considered to be the sweetest. Then I keep on asking: who is fooling who ? Whenever we depend upon other people’s classified knowledge, we take the likeness of someone else.
Don’t leave your brain idle, make use of it. The first step is the hardest. But remember, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. Of a little wonder, Proverb 23:7 states that what you are today is what your thought has made you. Obviously, as a bad workman always blames his tools, lazy students blame their academic potentialities and talents, whe- reas every man born of a woman has the ability to recreate his thinking faculty. It is a must, think !
