Tell Me

You can never learn too many things about life. You can read a gazillion quotes, thousands of books, and talk to hundreds and hundreds of people- take in their experiences, soak up their stories, and learn from their mistakes... it still won't make you an expert. You will stumble upon forks in the road and search for more answers. You can never learn too much about life.

You think after passing a certain age that "you would know better"... only to find out that, in fact, NO. You don't know any better. You will still make mistakes.
You think you know the difference between right and wrong? Are you sure? Think again.
Would it make a difference if what was wrong made you happy and the right thing to do only lead to insanity? Is there moral conflict in that? Who's to say what's right or wrong anyway?

Is Happiness always right? Are you sure? What do the experts have to say about that?
Is suffering righteous? Who the hell came up with that?

All these questions. So many of them. Who has the answers? And how do we know they're right?
