Wait...what? How is this philosophy? Since when is salmon hard to digest? Is he saying that we should only police sentimentality once a week? Why don't I understand philosophy? I didn't know philosophy had kissing in it.

One does not question a philosopher's wisdom concering these truths.

I wanted to think he meant that sentimentality is inevitable, that it's as impossible to regulate as people's presumably boundless desire for salmon. But, in fact, I think he's saying that we should exercise more restraint, that too much sentiment can cause mental "indigestion." Also, Either/Or has sex stories in it.

I’m thinking about how we make things, why we make things, and why we make things how we make things.

The band’s three-guitar attack worked even better live than it did on their record, “Plunder, Beg, and Curse,” and to their credit, they came off like a Southern-y, poor man’s version of Built to Spill.

This is brilliant even though there's not a Leap of Faith involved.

"Ubermensch," below, has said it better than I. But also there will, sometimes, occasionally, probably be other "strips" as I progress through the book, as it is a fount of rich comic (yet poignant) subject matter.

not content to indulge in a leap of faith for himself, he wrote a book which demands you take a leap of faith in believing it to be a book at all :p

спасибо, это определение разрушило мое впечатление о Кьеркегоре навсегда (я воспринимаю это определение иронически).
