the opportunist grabs the glass and drinks the water.

a materialist realist would most likely avoid the psychological and philosophical implications altogether by simply stating that there is twice as much glass as needed.

the old wise man said"The answer depends on who's pouring and who's drinking."

        


Those who argue over whether the glass is half full or half empty miss the point - The glass can be re-filled!

Anger blows out the lamp of the mind.
In the examination of a great and important question, every one should be serene, slow-pulsed, and calm.


Robert Green Ingersoll

Contempt prior to examination is an intellectual vice, from which the greatest faculties of mind are not free.
I know not, indeed, whether men of the greatest faculties of mind, are not the most subject to it.

Such men feel themselves seated upon an eminence.
Looking down from their height upon the follies of mankind, they behold contending tenets wasting their idle strength upon one another, with the common disdain of the absurdity of them all.

This habit of thought, however comfortable to the mind which entertains it, or however natural to great parts, is extremely dangerous; and more apt, than almost any other disposition, to produce hasty and contemptuous, and, by consequence, erroneous judgments, both of persons and opinions.


William Paley

“Referees always have to say, in the ring: ‘Protect yourself at all times’ .
It's a lie because you can't. You came to fight.
If you were really interested in protecting yourself, you'd get out of the ring and go home.”

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born.

"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:
A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.
To him...
a touch is a blow,
a sound is a noise,
a misfortune is a tragedy,
a joy is an ecstasy,
a friend is a lover,
a lover is a god,
and failure is death.

Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create - - - so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating."

~ Pearl Buck
