Always There to Remind Me

Nothing depresses me more than the knowledge that I have little hope of finishing all the books I wish to read in this lifetime.

Nothing delights me more than the knowledge that I have little hope of finishing all the books I wish to read in this lifetime.

The limitless possibilities of learning scare me, satisfy me, sadden me, and soothe me all at once.

And I should have it no other way.

Every book is a mirror reflecting back to me the evidence of both my mortality and my magnificence.

It is good for me to remember both.

  1. Oh yes, T.K.

    What haunts me is the lost library of Alexandria.
    Destroyed after 700 years. All the ancient thoughts
    that were written down and preserved there.: Gone.
    Philosophy, history, science, medicine, astronomy,
    biographies, plays……brought to this ancient city by
    emissaries from every corner of the civilized world then.

    Knowledge

    All but a mere 1 %. lost.

    Enter the Dark and Middle Ages.

    Wonder what it would take to restore our present collection
    of books and knowledge if we lost it all now?

    Let’s not.
