    1 thought on “Waking to the Reality of this World is Brutal”

    1. “He who learns must suffer
      And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget
      Falls drop by drop upon the heart…
      And in our own despair, against our will,
      Comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.”
      –Agamemnon; Aeschylus

      And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I learned that this also is vexation of spirit.
      For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
      Eclesiastes 1:17,18

      When ignorance is bliss,
      Tis folly to be wise.

      ”The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.”
