Fulghum Quote

This is my favorite bit of wisdom from Robert Fulghum in his book From Beginning to End. For those who don't recognize that, he's the one who wrote Everything I Need to Know I Learned In Kindergarten and It Was on Fire When I Laid Down on It. All three are good books. I just happen to really like the fodder this bit offers.

I have never like the phrase that says we're made of dust and return to dust. We are energy, which is interchangeable with light. We are fire and water and earth. We are air and atoms and quarks. Moreover, we are dreams, hopes and fears held together by wisdom and driven apart by folly. So much more than dust. The biblical verse should say, "Mystery thou art and to mystery returneth."
