Out of the mouths of babes

So my newly-turned-six year old just asked me: "Daddy, are there any better philosophers than you?"

"Yes," I avowed, "there certainly are."

"Like that man?" she said pointing to my bronze and marble bust of Socrates on my book case.

"Yeah," I said, "like him." I added, "And there are others, too."

Still, the confidence boost helped me trudge through a "revise and resubmit".
