"Weak as I am, I carry on the war to the last moment, I get a hundred pike-thrusts, I return two hundred, and I laugh. I see near my door Geneva on fire with quarrels over nothing, and I laugh again; and, thank God, I can look upon the world as a farce even when it becomes as tragic as it sometimes does. All comes out even at the end of the day, and all comes out still more even when all the days are over."

~Voltaire, quoted in The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature by William James. Found on Brain Pickings.

From this article: Unknown Unknowns: The Problem of Hypocognition (by Kaidi Wu, David Dunning, 2018):
Quote:
We wander about the unknown terrains of life as novices more often than experts, complacent of what we know and oblivious to what we miss.
So if ever you need an excuse for reading, just remember that we face an ongoing battle against hypocognitition. It's a desperate and seemingly hopeless battle, my friends, but we face it bravely and resolutely. Read on, my comrades, read on!
