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

There is a charming tale of Tchekov’s about a man who tried
to teach a kitten to catch mice. When it wouldn’t run after them, he beat it,
with the result that even as an adult cat it cowered with terror in the
presence of a mouse. This is the man, Tchekov adds, who taught me Latin.
