F
If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.

R
I didn't have to think up so much as a comma or a semicolon; it was all given, straight from the celestial recording room. Weary, I would beg for a break, an intermission, to go to the toilet or take a breath of fresh air on the balcony. Nothing doing!
A
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
N
The world itself is pregnant with failure, is the perfect manifestation of imperfection, of the consciousness of failure.
K
