This Much I Know by AC Grayling

Philosopher AC Grayling shares his nuggets of wisdom in The Guardian's highly enjoyable This much I know series:

Science is the outcome of being prepared to live without certainty and therefore a mark of maturity. It embraces doubt and loose ends.

I'm not sure it is possible to think too much. You don't refresh your mind by partying in Ibiza.

Life is all about relationships. By all means sit cross-legged on top of a mountain occasionally. But don't do it for very long.

Every professor of philosophy needs a nine-year-old daughter. Mine has a habit of saying, "Daddy, that is a very silly idea." She is always right.

I would disagree with him, I think it is perfectly possible to "overthink" a problem, and a break from the process (or even a party) can certainly help bring relaxation and afterward: a solution.

Huh, I could have said the same thing of religion.

Our relationships make up our reality as only we know it. It is important to have your own personal spirit and mind and sometimes that takes meditation and being alone.
