Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum
This quote, "Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum", translates to "I think, I think, therefore I think, I am." It highlights the concept of existence and self-awareness through thought. The repetition emphasizes the importance of thinking in validating one's own existence and being. It implies that the act of thinking itself is evidence of one's existence, as it is through introspection and reflection that we affirm our own reality as thinking beings. This quote encapsulates the philosophical idea of cogito ergo sum, or "I think, therefore I am," coined by RenÃ© Descartes.

I asked him if it were a mirage, and he said yes. I said it was a dream, and he agreed, But said it was the desert's dream not his. And he told me that in a year or so, when he had aged enough for any man, then he would walk into the wind, until he saw the tents. This time, he said, he would go on with them.
So much for endings. Beginnings are always more fun. True connoisseurs, however, are known to favor the stretch in between, since it's the hardest to do anything with. That's about all that can be said for plots, which anyway are just one thing after another, a what and a what and a what.
