The world is incomprehensible.
We won't ever understand it;
we won't ever unravel its secrets.
Thus we must treat the world as it is:
a sheer mystery.
- Carlos Castaneda

To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand.
- Jose Ortega Y Gasset

God is not what you imagine,
or what you think you understand.
If you understand you have failed.
- Saint Augustine

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize
how little we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.
- Socrates

The book of life is filled with incoherent riddles.
Life's true lessons are inscribed in a corner of the margin.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Life is a riddle.
We cannot expect to understand life's twists and turns as they occur each day,
and we greatly frustrate ourselves in the futile attempt.
Be content to appreciate that there is an overarching purpose,
though that purpose be known only to God, and to history.
Choose service. Choose joy. Accept the unknowing.
