Do you ever wonder if there will be enough time to do all the things you want to do? Enough time to read all the books you want to read? Enough time to learn all the new, beautiful words that you want to learn? Enough time to see the billions of examples of beauty in the world, and more than that, enough time to gain the wisdom to be able to appreciate them all.
The more I read, the more I realize how little I know and understand about the world. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly. There are so many books I want to read, and so few hours that I get to spend reading. In this world that moves so quickly, so loudly, where is the time for that?
Mark Twain said it best when he wrote, “Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot. BY ORDER OF THE AUTHOR.”
The beauty must be found in the words, in the creation of worlds. The moral is sometimes not important. Occasionally, we must do things with only thoughts of enjoyment in our minds.
I hate to add a moral to the story, but find what you love, and pursue it. Continue growing and changing, for that is the best part of our world. Pursue the wisdom needed to see the beauty in all things, not just the vain beauty of youth, and pray that there will be books in heaven, for only an eternity will be enough time.
