Waiting Makes You Philosopher, or Anything You Want to Be

The Terminal is my most favorite movie for all the time. Life is waiting. We wait, we have to wait. Sometime waiting makes us feeling good, often its painful. But still we have to wait.

I’ve been waiting my whole life, I just don’t know what the hell for.

Amelia, The Terminal

I can hear a music very unfamiliar… I never heard this tune. Someone is playing a guitar in a very wonderful way. I usually listen to music when I wait. But this time waiting isn’t wasting of time. That day when I was waiting under the open sky, a rain drop touched me. I’d love to wait my whole life for being touched by such a drop of rain.

Waiting makes you a human being, a philosopher or anything you want to be.

Young Philosopher

Yesterday I was talking with my nephew who is just 8 years and old lives abroad. I asked him a random question what is life?

Life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry.

The wise donkey

It’s not a usual question for such young age and he even didn’t understand the question. Then I tried to explain him the question and he told me that he doesn’t know the answer. I told him life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry. He just shook his head.

Then I asked him the questions separately. He started counting his finger and answered me without any hesitation.

When do you feel happy?

  • when I do something good
  • when I come to my home and talk
  • when someone plays with me
  • when I am near to a sea

When do you feel sorrow?

  • if someone beat me
  • if someone kick me
  • if someone tell me a bad thing
  • find myself in a bad place
  • find myself in a war

I don’t know when children start building their own universe. Often I found their thought process much better than the adult.
