Quote by Lewis Thomas
The most solid piece of scientific truth I know of is that we are profoundly ignorant about nature.
This quote highlights the humble realization that despite our advances in scientific knowledge, there is still so much about the natural world that remains unknown to us. It emphasizes the humility required to acknowledge our profound ignorance, as scientific progress often reveals new complexities and mysteries. It serves as a reminder that scientific knowledge is ever-evolving and encourages a curiosity-driven pursuit of knowledge to uncover the profound truths that lie beyond our current understanding.
Better to forget, better to let go of the bitterness. I say bitterness is only good in medicine, or if you fry bitter gourd with egg, then it's dlicious. I told Lan-Lan many times, we have only one life, it's important to kua kwee, to look spaciously. Not keep the eyes so narrowed down to the small dispairs.Those people who say forgive and forget, I say they not right. Not so simple. I say, find right medicine. Bitterness must be just right for problem. Then swallow it, think of good things can do when no longer sick.
This exists. It can be seen. It can be touched. These in pace, these dungeons, these iron hinges, these necklets, that lofty peep-hole on a level with the river's current, that box of stone closed with a lid of granite like a tomb, with this difference, that the dead man here was a living being, that soil which is but mud, that vault hole, those oozing walls, --what declaimers!
