Critical Point

Monday, May 26, 2008

Beyond an indistinct but critical point in life, most of your latter-day resolves fall apart and you end up either doing whatever’s damn well easiest or else whatever you feel strongest about. (These two in fact can get mixed up and cause plenty of mischief.) At the same time it also gets harder and harder to believe you can control anything via principle or discipline, though we all talk as if we can, and actually try like hell.

- Richard Ford, Independence Day, 1995
