But I'm still trying to work out how to operate the air conditioning unit on my car.
The history of philosophy is not, like the history of the sciences, to be studied with the intellect alone. That which is receptive in us and that which impinges upon us from history is the reality of man's being, unfolding itself in thought.

John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
