"You are so special to me that I'd give you my last 'Rolo'........problem is, I've ate it."
Help someone when they're in trouble and they'll remember you... when they're in trouble again.
My two youngest kids are a living testimony to that phrase.
"He's got as much chance of winning that prize as a one legged man in an arse kicking competion."
That is what I might call the philosophy of practical living.
When I was in college, I thought that the best way to define what is philosophy is to say that:
"Philosophy is the unending quest by mankind for the programming that exists or might exist or should exist in everything by thinking with our mind."
That is why the highest academic achievement in any field of human knowledge is the attainment of the degree called PhD - i.e. the Doctorate in Philosophy, then qualified by the particular field of knowledge an academician is a PhD of, like for example, a PhD(Sc) is higher than a DSc - i.e. a Doctor in Science.
Of course things can be different in different places in the world of academic learning.
My point here is to submit that philosophy is the highest level of human knowledge, so that if in a field of knowledge a person has not reached up to the philosophical level, then he does not know the programming that exists or might exist or should exist in his chosen field of knowledge, like in science - in which case his knowledge of science is not yet complete.
For example, an academician might be a Doctor of Science, but without the degree of PhD(Sc) he does not know the place of science in the whole universe of human knowledge.
What about a PhD in philosophy?
That should qualify an academician to talk down to all other PhD degree holders in whatever discipline they are PhD of.
