Quotation of the Day

A conversational bit I heard today and simply had to post.

- You know I look at my family and I seriously wonder: where did I pick up my particular genetic combo?
- Hm. That is the question that Aristotle would still be wrestling with.

Let the ontological discussion start.

My feelings exactly. Is this from a conversation I had earlier today?

I suppose it's what happens when many struggle to define themselves as individuals within the familial unit.

I think the older you get the more you see a resemblance of yourself in your family. Or maybe that's just me.

What was the context in which the conversation was that?
Of course, an answer to this question would be contingent upon you having heard all, or at least, most of it and if that's the case, then my own question would be, where did you hear it?
The answer to the original question is something any analyst would have fun with. 'Who I am is sth Aristotle would still be wrestling with.....' Whoever uttered this has my vote for best sentence of the day.

I am loving the narcissistic tone of this....
Where did you hear this, if I might ask? I should start paying more attention to public conversation and stop carrying my iPod with me everywhere. Apparently, I'm missing out on some gems out there.....
