T-09 : PhilosoComediCartoonish Truths
There's a TaxAct commercial running on some of the podcasts I listen to currently that included the phrase, "...recite the wisdom of philosophers, late-night comedians, and cartoon characters at just the right moment...". I think that describes who I aspire to be. I believe that all truth is circumscribed in one whole. I believe that philosophers, comedic writers, and cartoonists all have access to such truth. I believe that we can ascertain these truths from philosophic, comedic, and/or cartoonish angles. Last Sunday in Sacrament Meeting I bore testimony to the fact that, not only could we seek out of the best books words of wisdom - as prescribed in D&C 88:118 - but that we could seek this type of wisdom from other sources, too. I believe that philosophy, comedy, and cartoons are just 3 more examples of types of places we can look for some of those little nuggets.
