Erudition is not wisdom

Q: ‘Why don’t you go around and talk to other philosophers?’

A: To me that’s not philosophy. It is like literary criticism. A real writer, like Hemingway, doesn’t cast around for opinions, he goes off fishing somewhere, starts calming down. He said: ‘I turn my flame down and down and down and down until it explodes.’
