Plato? Descartes? Emerson? What a bunch of amateurs! The philosopher that best understands the human spirit is Homer Simpson, a middle-class American man in his late 30s. As one of Homer’s disciples, I’d like to share some of his teachings.
First, if you want people to respect you, you have to give them something of value.
Ignore all the language lessons you learned by rote in school.
And the math lessons too.
Put your faith in a higher power.
Tell other people what you need from them.
Provide evidence to back up your claims.
Live up to your potential.
And, finally, inspire others.
