The Definition:

Philosophy consists of the contemplative investigation of the most fundamental aspects of existence, life, knowledge, and value. Philosophy concerns itself with how to live one’s life (ethics), what one knows, can know, and how one knows it (epistemology), and what can be said to exist (metaphysics).

The word philosophy comes from the Greek word philos, meaning love/affinity/friendship, and the Greek word sophia, meaning wisdom. So a philosopher is literally a lover of wisdom.

Some Quotes:

“Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

“Perfection does not come from belief or faith. Talk does not count for anything. Parrots can do that. Perfection comes through selfless work.” -Swami Vivekananda

My Thoughts:

We are what our thoughts have made us… because thoughts become things.
