    Humans couldn’t possibly know everything, unless they’re living in a hall full of mirrors talking to themselves everyday; I disappear quickly when I see them coming.

      Thanks Tim. Yes, I don’t believe we can’t possibly know everything either, but we can at least try to work things out because that’s how we emotionally and spiritually grow. The more we grow, the more learned we become.

      As we continue to live our lives we can continue to learn, but not everyone will choose to. Some of us think we know, but clearly don’t, but if we don’t know we should at least admit we don’t know, because that encourages us to want to learn.

    Great quote. No one knows all the answers as they don’t know all the questions!

      I agree with that. Yes, quite. I believe it time we may come to know. It’s all about emotional growth. Without that we will surely come to struggle.

    Most of the time when someone acts like they know all the answers, they usually don’t and turn out to just be a blowhard who want all of our attention.

    If I actually had all of the answers, I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in at this point of my life!

      Thanks Randy. Yes, quite. Perhaps it’s a confidence thing. People who go out of their way and think they know the answers, usually do it because they have a point to make, something to prove or just want to be heard. Those of my experiences.

      The good thing about time is that it does move on and so do our circumstances. We’re lucky time doesn’t stand still otherwise we’d be in the same position forever.

      It’s up to us to look for the opportunities, so that we can change our lives. That’s how The CP Diary got started.
