I found this interesting engraving at the Met.
The engraving is by Robert Benard, the original artwork by David Teniers The Younger. The verse below the engraving reads:
To the philosopher admiring all the charms
For new systems far away to render arms
I declare war against all passion,
Simplicity is my only ambition.
Poor but virtuous I look in silence
A sweet, voluptuous daughter of innocence
Content in my state and pipe in hand
At leisure I laugh at all mankind.
We are all philosophers in the privacy of our own heads, even if we don’t think of ourselves like that. All of us contemplate life from that place of darkness behind the eyes. What more is there to say?
