    I've also had a recent epiphany: Huey Freeman (of The Boondocks, created by Aaron McGruder) is one of the greatest philosophers of our time. Through him, McGruder shows the true face of society, the one everyone pretends doesn't exist, the one people know about but purposely hide. My personal favorite example is from the first season, in the episode "Nigga Moments". The first lines of the episode are Huey's voiceover while the viewer sees a crosswalk. His voice says: "Watch closely. You are about to experience a "nigga moment". Webster defines the "nigga moment" as a moment when ignorance overwhelms the mind of an otherwise logical Negro male. Causing him to act in an illogical, self-destructive manner... i.e. like a nigga. If Nigga Moments had their own category, Nigga Moments would be the third leading killer of black men behind pork chops and F.E.M.A. It's a fact". It's nice to see that someone like McGruder doesn't care what the censors say, and goes on writing the world as he sees it. The world needs more thinkers like McGruder. In fact, nobody should let how society feels hinder who they'd like to be or what they'd like to say. Political correctness is a disease that's slowly killing off individualism.

    Honesty.
    That's my golden rule.
    I've recently learned how bad lying is. It sucks monkey balls.

    "Morality is strictly situational." My golden rule, simply because I don't agree with a lot of people on what should and shouldn't be allowed.

    I totally agree with that actually! :) McGruder is very poetic in his own way. And very expressive.

    I thought this thread was about "the golden ratio" - I was surprised, seeing as this is Mibba.

    I love the original one to apply to me but I'm afraid I don't apply it to everyone else. Snob

    I'm a huge pessimist. I'm not for believing in big dreams because I try and keep a real-life view on what goes on. Love is hard for me and so is apologizing and being wrong. I'm a headstrong bitch, I'll admit. So I'm not one for Golden Rules.

    But I suppose I'd say "Be realistic."

    "Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high--then life seems almost enchanted after all."

    Van Gogh wrote this in a letter to his brother before he died, and I think it sums up life perfectly. Life is going to throw all manner of things at you, but it's completely up to you on how it impacts your life. It seems we're better at remembering the bad things that happen to us than the good, but van Gogh says to know the good, too, and realize that you're lucky to have what you do, and that all things can get better. And I think if you remember that, nothing can stand in your way.

    This quote had such an impact on me, I had it engraved inside the ring I wear everyday, so I never forget.
