Falling into place

There is cause and effect. And when people are in pain, they will let anyone be doctor. But then again, no snowflake ever falls in the wrong place. Yet, you can’t reason someone out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into.

And so the obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.

Because we didn’t believe that to believe we must begin with doubting, we end up saying that we become responsible forever for those we’ve tamed.

Still, I am part of all that I have met.

But eggs cannot be unscrambled.

And yes, we used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. But then we are finding that we must learn a great deal more about “and”.

Why thought provoking sayings?

Because I tell you everything that is really nothing, and nothing of what is everything. So do not be fooled by what I am saying.  But listen carefully and try to hear what I am not saying.

Because almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it.

What now?


Alice came to a fork in the road.  "Which road do I take?" she asked.

"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.

"I don't know," Alice answered.

"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
