Form must have a content, and that content must be linked with nature.
People disparage knowing and the intellectual life, and urge doing. I am content with knowing, if only I could know.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The greatest wealth is to live content with little, for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

I get that racism exists, but it's not a catalyst for my content. I don't need to talk about race to have material. My style of comedy is more self-deprecating. I think that makes me more relatable.
