Life's True Lessons Come As Riddles


Life is a riddle.
We cannot expect to understand life's twists and turns as they occur each day,
and we greatly frustrate ourselves in the futile attempt.

though that purpose be known only to God, and to history.
Choose service. Choose joy. Accept the unknowing.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

how little we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.

Fundamentals


Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
- Confucius

If you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are,

And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.
- Terry Pratchett

When you jump for joy, beware that no one
moves the ground from beneath your feet.
