“When life walls us in, our intelligence cuts an opening”
“Là où la vie emmure, l’intelligence perce une issue”
“No one will know my secret, nor even if I have one”
“There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers”
Tereza of Avila
The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella;
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust hath the just’s umbrella.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
“Bureaucracy is a construction designed to maximize the distance between a decision-maker and the risks of the decision”.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
