“What a man knows at 50 that he did not know at 20 is, for the most part, incommunicable. The knowledge he ha acquired with age is not the knowledge of formulas, or forms of words, but of people, places, actions – a knowledge not gained by words but by touch, sight, sound, victories, failures, sleeplessness, devotion, love – the human experiences and emotions of this earth and of oneself and other men, and perhaps, too, a little faith, a little reverence for things you cannot see.” ~ Adlai Stevenson.
When people say to me, "How do you do so many things?" I often answer them, without meaning to be cruel: "How do you do so little?" It seems to me that people have vast potential. Most people can do vast extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever. --- Philip Adams.
