Just Think

Image

In a pensive moment, when you are compelled to sort out your thoughts or you have a curiosity to ponder something profoundly true, don’t reflexively turn on music or play a movie. These things won’t aid you, they will distract you from what you’ve already begun. Don’t let someone think for you. Find the silence and think it through. If you’re out of practice it will begin uncomfortably, but wait until it no longer is. Ah, then you’ve found it! If we don’t try, many of us will go days without making time for original thought. Now that’s a bit frightening.
