We seek knowledge, but know that we don’t know.
We seek wisdom, but recognize our foolishness.
We seek to be generous and loving, but recognize we are often selfish and resentful.
We recognize that in recognizing our own failings we should become more patient with the failings of others, but we are often quick to judge the failings of others.
Yet, we try to do our best to be loving and to find beauty and joy in our brief sojourn on this remarkable earth, and sometimes we succeed wonderfully.
