The older and (somewhat) wiser I become, the more I realize how much in this world sucks.
But, conversely, there are plenty of things which make this world truly amazing. I am thankful for so many things; among them is the ability to learn.
Way back in 1768, in one of his famous poems, Mr. Thomas Gray wrote “Ignorance is bliss.”
I’d like to know: Is it really?
I think often about the things I wish I didn’t know…but what about the things which, by knowing of them, changed your life for the better?
Enlighten me, oh fellow philosophers. I look forward to your wisdom!
