A Tormenting ‘WHY’


The picture here is of a badge on my backpack. What it says has two interpretations.

1. I still haven’t found what is it that I’m looking for
2. I know what I am looking for but I haven’t found it yet.

I am more #1 and less #2.

There is this interesting (!) Chinese curse I had read somewhere. It is in two parts. First part says, “May you live in interesting times” and second says “May you find what you are looking for”. Although these two are part of a curse, for each of us one of the two would be more scary than the other. For me part two is scarier.

Like Friedrich Nietzsche said –
“He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW.”
