Chekov Quotation

"...and suddenly everything became clear to him."

Hey Matt -

this quote reminded me of Ivan Karamazov (no, I STILL haven't finished that book, but yes, I do still think about it...) here are his words:

“I want to be there when everyone suddenly finds out what it was all for. All religions are based on this desire, and I am a believer” (244)

...there are definitely those moments when we can look back on something and see it clearly, but can you even imagine how overwhelming it would be to get a clear understanding about our lives or world as a whole? oh, how we desire those flashing signs, mapped out destinations, and reasonable explanations, but God must know how much we can truly handle at one time... (some thoughts on this side of graduation :))
