A life of learning

I have spent my life learning and still have library fines to pay.

I speak daily on philosophy, sociology, and psychology; and if my cat could talk he would meow about psychiatry.

Yet. I will spend my life learning and no one will know what I know, but if they did, would they care for who I was, and will they care for my cat when I’m gone?


I’ve come to a fork in the road and I don’t know which way is the right way to go. I could go right but maybe right is wrong. Maybe the right road is the road that I’m on. Or maybe I should just turn around and the road that I’m on go back down. Or maybe the right road is left unless the left road is the road I just left. What if the left road is wrong? How many roads do I have left to go on? Before I come to the end maybe I should begin all over again. Then when I come to the fork in the road, stay there until I am old. Neither turning right nor left. Then I’ll neither be right nor wrong and there I’ll be left at the end of life’s song.

Stay the path

Stay the path. No matter how slow. If you turn from it you may never know where it may lead or how far you may go. So stay the path, no matter how slow.
