you can pretty much make any statement casting the following what i would describe as "buzz" or "emotion" words:
and come out looking like a philosophical genius. regardless of how pointless the actual statement is. or regardless of how much it would add to the human experience.
at the same time it's odd to feel uncomfortable with these phrases, as their intent is to provide comfort. sometimes i find myself getting annoyed when some philosopher or social commentator comes up with some silly fragmented thought that regards LOVE as the ANSWER ... maybe 'answer' could go in that list. i think you'd be hard pressed to find someone that didn't want all of those things.
propping your intelligence up by keying in on those ideas seems like a cheap way to gain respect and admiration.
