Gaining Perspective

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; 
it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; 
it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; 
it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; 
it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; 
we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; 
we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."

- Charles Dickens

Maybe we're all just idiots who don't learn as we go along, but continue to make the same mistakes over and over again in an absurd, cyclical, Alice-in-wonderland-esque world.

Maybe that's just me.

Maybe learning is over-hyped. 

Maybe un-learning is the key to survival. The more you know, the more you have to forget what you thought you knew; or so I would like to believe as of now. 

Maybe the so-called key to happiness is to stop wanting more. But is that the death of ambition? 

Maybe the key is to stop questioning so much. 

Maybe a "maybe" is as certain as you ever can be in this ever-spinning and transitory age.

"What if this is as good as it gets?"
