3-Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

Alright!  Day 2 of the Quote Challenge!  Thanks again to Kuro Sama for nominating me.

RULES:

  • Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
  • Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you

My second quote comes from something of an oddball character.  His name is Kaiki Deishu, from the Bakemonogatari series.

“The fake is of far greater value. In its deliberate attempt to be real, it’s more real than the real thing.” – Kaiki Deishu

This really speaks to me at my odd crossroads of psychology and philosophy.  Of course, the fake has to have a desire to be real, or as close as possible to the real.  Then, it has to make the effort to be. Essentially, it’s saying that a combination of desire and effort is what is valuable, and more real.   The real just is.  It doesn’t require anything more than mere existence.  In that sense, it’s easy.

When applied to work life, it brings another quote to mind – “fake it until you make it.”  If you pretend to be competent and that you know what you’re doing, eventually you will be. When you fake it through intention and effort, eventually it will become real.
