Short thought, I wanted to save.

If I knew, I never learned

If I learned, I never failed

If I failed, I never forgot


If I love, I never die.


"Isn't the point of education to understand how little we know?"

"If we believe we know everything, how will we ever learn anything?"

super duper cool piece Mark, I tell my wife everyday that inorder for her to help herself she should face up, it's like talking to a wall though. I faced up and I am a better person for it, nowhere near perfect but a little better. My wife keeps slipping in the mud with her superior know it all attitude, blame game, it's everyone elses fault etc

Many truisms which give pause to stop and reflect here, Mark. To keep going deeper into things is the way to stay afloat and to move on... trouble is we have a natural tendency to live life like a shallow puddle, not realising how we are either stagnating or just plain drying up! But boy oh boy is it true that we never forget our mistakes and failures... well, perhaps it is others who never let us?! Good thoughts worth holding onto - TY Kate x
