The things one wants to know…

“I wish life was not so short, he thought. Languages take such a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

Knowledge is increasing exponentially – everyone agrees.  Whether wisdom is growing at the same rate, is another matter altogether.

We have so much to learn in so little time. It makes life both exciting and frustrating. Perhaps this dynamic duo may be what keeps us moving forward. We have no time for regrets….

  1. “So much to learn and so little time”. So well said! I can only add this. My hobby is counted cross stitch. Many of the projects take hours to do–if one looks only at the finished project and all the time it takes to finish it could become less enjoyable and discouraging. One has to get started and enjoy the progress. So it is with knowledge–there’s so much to learn and so little time but the trick is to get started and the process of learning becomes enjoyable even exciting!

    • You’re right. There are many times that the learning choices are so vast, that I become confused, rather than focused. Getting started is the beginning and then let time take care of the rest….Thank you….
