We recently got our hands on Marcus Butler's new book. Hello Life! is part lifestyle guide and part autobiography and is filled with Marcus' experiences including dealing with grief and YouTube success. We delved into the book and actually found some pretty deep and meaningful things. Which got us thinking, is Marcus Butler the modern day Socrates?
We've devised a quiz to find out if you know your Marcus Butler from your Karl Marx...
Who Said It: Marcus Butler Or A Philosopher?
Is this a quote from Marcus Butler's book or from a famous philosopher?
"Accomplishment starts with the decision to try."
"Unless you're telepathic, this Object of Desire is probably unaware of your affections"
"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you."
"You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing."
"Keep the sex noises to the bedroom"
"Beware of the person of one book."
"You have to make a change and walk away from the people who are bringing you down"
"I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again."
"The toughest hurdle to overcome was fear"
"Last words are for fools who haven't said enough."
May we suggest heading to a book shop? Either pick up Hello Life! or Descartes Meditations. Better luck next time!
It's OK, this quiz was pretty hard. After all, Marcus Butler is obvs YouTube's answer to Plato.
You got a good score so you've clearly had a good look through Hello Life! Marcus would be proud of you!
You're either incredibly knowledgeable on Marcus Butler or a major philosophy geek. Either way, well done you!
