AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Startled.


All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
