I Yam what I Yam


This will have to do for a motto.

[Mind you, Popeye’s motto is the same as (or perhaps a riposte to) “tat tvam asi”, ( Sanskrit: “thou art that”) in Hinduism, the famous expression of the relationship between the individual and the Absolute. The statement is frequently repeated in the sixth chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad (c. 600 bce) as the teacher Uddalaka Aruni instructs his son in the nature of brahman, the supreme reality. (Encyclopaedia Britannica)]

Mind you, whenever I say “mind you”, sententiousness follows!
