Cogito Ergo Sum.

Till now in my life, I have been using this phrase a lot: 'Cogito Ergo Sum'. People have been asking me for long about what does it mean, so here it goes...

Cogito, ergo sum: The Latin for: "I think, therefore I am". Its a philosophical statement used by René Descartes, which became a foundational element of western philosophy.

The latest thought on the same idea that I came accross is here below:

Nature gave men two ends— One to sit on and one to think with. Ever since then man's success or Failure has been dependent on the one he used most.
