For something that’s “just a comic”, Calvin and Hobbes contains an amazing amount of highly quotable wisdom and (semi-)philosophy. Some of these quotes have made into my daily view on life. Examples:
“Things are never so bad that they can’t get worse.” Gloomy, I know, but highly appropriate sometimes.
“A good compromise leaves everybody mad.”
“Provoking a reaction is not the same as saying something significant.”
“Cooking must be hard if you antropomorphise your vegetables.” Calvin says this after seeing his mom crying because she’s cutting up an onion. I use it to mean that if you think too hard about it, you can find moral objections to even the most trivial things.
There are more, of course. So what’s your favourite pearl of wisdom from the mouths of our favourite little boy-tiger combo? Or do you extract your philosophy from another comic?
