Once I discussed with the stranger about human being fortune.. We philosophised about this theme four hours, when he knew that I am artist he said: "All intellectual people, artists are hapless. The less think the better!". I think that there is a part of true, but also every person can create his own fortune..

happiness is not the ownership of any one person, group or section of the society. Anyone can have happiness, provided he works for achieving it. It does not come on its own. For me the happiness comes to a person, if he is honest, upright, hardworking. It can embrace the right and the poor, it can be both man's and woman's and of all human beings, it can be transitional and not complete or permanent.1916-2008

Hi, ssh123! certainly you are right, but I ask about the meaning of thinking; when you analyse your minds, your life meaning, tasks; analyse your yesterday, today, tomorrow; ponder about world miseries, about policy lie... I want to ask you is it necessary to heap work on your head? Maybe live and don't think about all these things are easer? Maybe we should think only about food, sleep, duty - daily living needs?

Yes and I appreciate your line of thinking. In society the entire population cannot go in line with intellectuals. The society that way is divided into different class of people, like teachers, workers, diggers, movers (transport people). I consider the intellectuals are one class of people, probably give a lot of exercise to their mind than others and come out with some fine tuning statements which sounds very intellectual for non-thinkers.

When we talk about thinking I can't understand people who categorize other in groups like religion, in colors of skin, in welfare recipient and affluent people... I often quarrel over this question! There are a lot of people who think that only rich, famous, high-status people have right and faculty to think.. it's sad because exactly these categories folk forgot this significant act a long while ago... I know that this question is very painful for majority and everyday they become angrier.. I understand them!everybody has the rights of equal value!
