Only Water - a blog on modern day philosophy

“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”

 – Lao Tzu

Welcome to Only Water (https://Only—Water.com). A thought provoking online blog about modern day philosophy. Written by an at present anonymous blogger interested in the philosophical questions that we often ask ourselves such as why are we here? Who are we? What is Happiness? What are we, who are we and what does it all mean? Everything that you read on this blog comes from my personal thoughts and musings based on what I have experienced in my time here. I don’t claim that any of it will make sense let alone have any meaningful substance. After all, what do any of us really know about the world in which we live? To paraphrase Albert Einstein; Only a Fool can Know.
