  1. If you need the status of a philosopher, in the sense of a diploma or degree, then just go for a specialized education.

    And to be a philosopher “truly”, it is necessary that a person is strongly and deeply touched by some Question. It is not necessary that they will immediately understand what the question or problem is, and will not even be able to formulate it, but they will definitely feel the desire not to stop learning. It is this unstoppable thirst to understand (not to learn and calm down, but to understand more and more widely) that makes a person a philosopher.

  2. When I met Socrates, he told me:

    -“Get married! If you get a good wife, you'll be happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.
