New York City Public Library Aphorism #67 NYC/4

“The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man.”

T.S. ELIOT

How true it is. Nice to have great libraries even in the computer age. In addition, nothing can come close to hold a real book in your hands.

Aphorism #2

“Oblivion is the rule and fame the exception, of humanity.”

Antoine de Rivarol

So much for human ambition. Unless we are extremely talented or fortunate, we will live our life and die unnoticed. Maybe our children and perhaps grandchildren will remember us…
The challenge is to find the meaning of our life as an average human under average circumstances and live it to the fullest. There must be a light somewhere in the darkness.
