Irony at Work

Inspired by Aristotle (384–322 BC)’s quote, “The end of labor is to gain leisure.” The titled responsion is “Irony at Work”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Goal-directed activity is teleological in nature and nothing more than an algorithm of fixed outcome potentials. Action plays a part but it’s biological and is only now being brought to the precipice of our cultural perception with planksip as the propagator.

Manual Labour of Love

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519)’s quote, “Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.”. The titled responsion is “Manual Labour of Love”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

What is this “spirit”, I keep hearing about? Is it the collective reflection of our social milieu? Da Vinci’s quote foreshadows Tolstoy some four decades later vis-à-vis, What Is Art? (1897). No one can hold your hand in the currency of creativity, so procreate at Will.

Enough’s Enough

Inspired by John Ruskin (1819–1900)’s quote, When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.. The titled responsion is Enough’s Enough”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

If at first you don’t succeed…

Inspired by Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)’s quote, Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.. The titled responsion is If at first you don’t succeed….”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?
