>tfw reading more and more and not giving up
I can't wait until I become a patrician that is educated that knows philosophy and reads stuff
socrates didn't write any books, anon. that troll is just baiting you because he read plato's gay fanfiction instead of reliable sources without unrequieted homoerotic subtext, like xenophon. he is upset his life has come to this, not aiming to be a lover of philosophy, and unable to fall back on aristophanes' ideal to be the lover of another human. :(
you should be happy you're getting more reading done than him, you probably won't kystbh like he eventually will when he realizes what his own best good is.
Yes it's great until you realize there is a difference between memory and intelligence, and that working on ones ability to pay attention is more valuable than reading the libraries of the world.
OP, unless you find ways to make the information you absorb coherent, systematic and practicable, you're probably gonna forget at a rate fast enough to nullify most of what you learn.
Why are you even doing this?
Because I am joining the navy soon and realize that I may need to read more. I already know Japanese very well so I am patrician plus I am in shape but literature shit I am not good with.
plus I was in a bad situation in my life so I need to step back learn from my mistakes and try again.
I am too dumb for this meta stuff at this point tbqh
You gotta try plus it is relaxing.
a-and Moby Dick come to think of it!
I'm sure Loomings will have a deep effect on you!
