One can learn such a lot and enjoy such a lot in seventy years, and three generations is a long, long time to see human follies and acquire human wisdom. Anyone who is wise and has lived long enough to witness the changes of fashion and morals and politics through the rise and fall of three generations should be perfectly satisfied to rise from his seat and go away saying, 'It was a good show,' when the curtain falls. --Lin Yutang (in Human Follies and Human Wisdom)

Being aware of, and balanced with, the non-clarity, is just as important as being aware of and balanced with clarity -- ultimately it's not about the clarity or even the awareness, but rather just the balance with which we live the experience.

And if we don't live in the moment, the moment lives in us. --Viral Mehta (in Moments Live in Us)
