To walk on the edge of chaos is to accept that our lives are open, uncontrolled, bound to the unexpected. Always facing a multitude of threats; some known, some unknown. Yet it is also to acknowledge that our acts have consequences and so to discover responsibility. It is to use the experience of life as a search for opportunity to learn and become.
If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
