AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

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

Pondering.


Into this wild abyss,
The womb of nature and perhaps her grave,
Of neither sea, nor shore, nor air, nor fire,
But all these in their pregnant causes mixed
Confusedly, and which thus must ever fight,
Unless the almighty maker them ordain
His dark materials to create more worlds,
Into this wild abyss the wary fiend
Stood on the brink of hell and looked a while,
Pondering his voyage …


John Milton, from Paradise Lost
