“The world is a puzzle. There’s no need to make sense out of it.” ~Socrates
If old Socrates thought his world was a puzzle, I wonder what he’d think of our world today? Sometimes, the best we can do is throw our hands in the air and surrender to the chaos — without adding any more to it. That doesn’t mean we should give up entirely, of course.
As any good philosopher will tell you, there are situations we can’t change or control. But we can always take care of our own little corner of the world — and aim to find peace and sanity there. ~CL
