  1. Cogito, ergo sum. – René Descartes

    I think therefore I am grumpy, sad or happy.
    What happens to us doesn’t matter.
    Our thoughts about the events
    determine our feelings.
    If the tree falls in the forest
    but I don’t know about it
    I don’t care if makes a sound or not.
    One woman’s weeds
    are another woman’s salad.
    If I see a thought coming but run out of ink
    before I write it down,
    have I really had that thought?
