PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY

of Bob Ciaffone

For the deeper stuff, I don't think it is appropriate to put your personal feelings on public display. Besides, most people are already quite sure they have the "correct" answer to the really meaningful questions, making other people's opinions of no consequence to them. I can only point out that the answers all these good folk are so sure about are often markedly different from each other, so it would appear that a great many people have unshakable confidence in something that is not quite the truth.

I'll confine my comments to the world that I know best; the art of playing games and teaching others. Note the way games mirror life in the real world.

This is my favorite saying, which I made up, and call "Bob's Law."

"The people most in need of advice are least likely to seek it"

(Postscript; many years after I first used this saying, it was pointed out to me that the 1992 movie, "A River Runs Through It," uses a similar expression: "Why is it the people who need the most help... won't take it? I have never seen that movie or read the book from which it was made, so did not get it from that source. I have no reason to think it was taken by them from me. I think the similarity is simply a coincidence, arising because the saying matches reality so closely.)

Here are some of my other observations:

I'm flattered to have you visit with me this long. Maybe it will make you lucky!
