Letting Go is Liberating

Inspired by Epicurus's (341-270 BC) quote, "The art of living well and the art of dying well are one." The titled responsion is Hegelian perhaps, a ratcheting forward of progress using liberty as the litmus.

Confined by a heuristic of sorts, the embodiment figures we follow define our existence. I'm talking about an ontology of meaning, the formation of which is human nature.

On Self Reflection

Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's (1844-1900) quote, "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby becomes a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." The titled responsion is reflective in nature.

Abyssal grounded, the Heideggarean reference resonates – or so Martin suggests in Contributions to Philosophy (1989). Rather than contributions, I tend to use suggestions as the more appropriate heuristic to describe this poetic correction to Being and Time (1927).

Go ahead, tempt me.

Inspired by Oscar Wilde's (1854-1900) quote, "I can resist everything except temptation." The titled responsion is tempting to say the most — at least that's the theme.
