One always dies too soon or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than you life. -Jean-Paul Sartre

My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that." -Alice in Wonderland (always worth repeating...)

There is a spontaneous conforming to learning without being consciously aware of doing so.
-Yagyu Munenori
