Paradox 2




We are ennobled by asking the questions,
impoverished by our failure to answer them.
And exalted by our ability to act in ignorance.

I have found little to be completely false.
The worst things, the wildest, the hardest,
have a little truth in them.

If I know what truth is,
if my understanding isn't completely false.

Poetry is full of unspeakable things
articulated in dreams and contronyms.

All lessons are always on offer:
we choose those we are ready for.
