I think, therefore I am

One of my favourite quote, or you can say life philosophy is: "I think, therefore I am". I was thinking to write about it today when I found out that it has actually been said by some well known philosopher called René Descartes.

As in Latin it is "Cogito, ergo sum" or "I am thinking, therefore I exist". I haven't read his work, so I am not sure in which context he used this term, but I strongly believe that unless we, as in ourself believe in our being, our importance, only then we can actually claim our existence in this insensitive world.
