Most of my philsophy come from a mix of c s lewis Joseph Campbell charlie chasplin Bruce Lee Eddie Murphy George Lopez and linkin park . I know the lasst few are not supposed to be here but I'll explain...
The way the last 2 comedians see life ... As funny .... Yes I'm a fan, no matter the day to them they will find the brighter side or at least make those around them laugh. Lp is one of my favorite bands and have my favorite songs in them. Steven Curtis Chapman is also a songwriter slash philosopher ..." There's no one more faithful to sit at the table than the one who best remembers hungers pain...no heart loves greater than the one that is able to recal the time when all it knew was shame. the wings of forgiveness to take us to heights never seen but the wisest one will never lose sight of when they were set free... So remember your chains ...are gone

Bon Jovi. I'll sleep when I'm dead, I'm living on a prayer, Someday I'll be Saturday night, and when I go down it'll be in a Blaze of Glory. B)

Edit:

Honestly most of my philosophy comes from music or fictional characters. Most actual philisophy books that I read have seemed like they are just talking a debating things for sheer sake of talking. Not all, mind you, but most. I find that wisdom that comes from fictional characters has been more inspiring to me and more applicable because those characters frequently only dole out wisdom when another character need it and thus it is more immedietely applicable. J.R.R Tolkien has been a huge source of inspiration to me through the words of Gandalf and Aragorn and other such characters.

Granted I have not spent much time studying actual philiosophers.

I wouldn't say he's my favourite, but I did just this afternoon get a copy of Markus Gabriel's "Warum es die Welt nicht gibt " ('Why the World isn't real") -- in the current of 'new realism' announced in 2011 by Gabriel and the Italian philosopher Mauricio Ferrara.

I'll let you know later ... :unsure:

We all have the philosopher inside us we just need to get in touch with him/her.

Nice to see some existentialists around. I'll add Sartre to the list.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.
