The unexamined life is not worth living.
The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.
~William M. Thackeray~
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.
