Generations

Seems like every generation looks back wondering "how could we have been like that." They celebrate the "progress" made. But then the next generation does the same. It seems our task to not become too comfortable, to keep evolving both as individuals and as groups, or not be surprised when we wake up one day "on the wrong side of history."

My quote of the week:

"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."

  1. That Rilke quote is amazing. That's my quote of the year.
