Quote by Emo Philips:


I had an argument with my father. I argued that Plato was the Father of Philosophy. My dad takes the opposite position: that I should wax the kitchen floor. I said, “Well, the kitchen floor doesn’t exist, at least not in the permanent sense that the concept ‘floor’ does.” He said “Do you think the concept ‘your skull’ exists?” I said “Yes.” And then he surprised me by juxtaposing the two concepts.

Whether it means having a show, or a movie, or just being on a stage, I need an avenue to say what I have to say.

Don't tempt me, I can resist anything but temptation.
