My own inner voice. Cause in the end, that's really all I've got, my own truths!
But that inner voice must be cultivated and developed by extraneous knowledge from the wise and brilliant from the ages past. Refuse to assimilate that & you're a fool. Dump your i Phone and READ! The world's accumulated knowledge is at your fingertips. Ignore it at your peril!
...and just how will the worlds knowledge help you? In the end we are all dead and forgotten.
That is a truly tragic way to look upon your life. You sound severely depressed. Seek help.
So what texts would you like to discuss, oh yea of knowledge and knowing banter? Sorry I'm old school just havin fun. i, what you said???
the question was from "living person". Your reply cites "ages past".
Wait. Did somebody living say something wise? I missed that. :) JK, though I find I'm having a hard time answering this one. A lot of the people I'd quote are long gone...and several are fictional, though I guess I'd just be quoting their authors.
I use logic more than wisdom. Wisdom comes with age and experience, but logic can be used by anyone.
That's a cop out. Are you going to grow up to be a politician?
Logic combined with wisdom will oftentimes ensure your longevity.
Desktop for sure.
Personally, I use all kinds of devices:
PC: e-textbooks, software, spreadsheets, data, and educational videos like Lynda.com;
Tablet: e-textbooks, ppt/pdf learning material, learning apps (e.g. Chinese language apps often include interactive text, audio and video files, handwriting and speaking exercises with feedback), or the Lumosity app; less frequently educational videos (battery life);
Smartphone: audio books while jogging or driving, and (less frequently) e-books;
And, finally: plain old books (some textbooks do not have a user-friendly layout in their e-versions), pen & paper (for exercise, memorizing, and deeper learning).
Depends on what the material is. If its spread sheets and data, a PC with 2 24" monitors. If its college or school related material, give me a good ol' book any day.
I wonder if the comments date the users? Book then desktop for me..
Algebra. Passed it, but did not like it. I aced geometry. Never went further. We got this new-fangled thing called a calculator. Screw maths.
Start with adding and subtracting. It was downhill from there.
Same here. When train A left the station going 35 miles an hour, so did I.
geometry. I hated it. But the teacher really sucked.
Yep, geometry is definitely not my strong suit!
Ooh, I love trigonometry. :D Especially when you integrate trigonometric functions. You end up with a good answer like 90% of the time.
But I'm still struggling with a lot of mathematical expressions in physical chemistry. I'm currently taking a course on that subject. Struggling most with Legendre transformations.
Wow. That sounds cool, man. College, right?
Almost. Uni. I'm really into this kind of stuff, but sometimes I hate myself because of wasting hours trying to understand something without getting anywhere. :P
Just noticed your names not all lit up any more and was wondering what's the guts? Hemorrhoids?
What does "what's the guts" mean?
Wanna see a lot of the swamp drained. Get rid of leeches linked to foreign powers who want to control the USA and all countries financially & sociologically via anti-Caucasian anti-heterosexual propaganda.
