Thought for the Day



The great mystery is not that we should have been thrown down here at random between the profusion of matter and that of the stars; it is that from our very prison we should draw, from our own selves, images powerful enough to deny our nothingness.

-Andre Malraux, "La Condition Humaine," (1933)

Ah, what a lovely, reassuring sentiment for this next-to-the-darkest day. Thank you, Greg.

And that we should do so, not only imprisoned, but with full awareness of our situation. Mystery, surely.
