Knowing about one's own stupidity has been unpleasant for quite some
time :)

Yesterday, I spent time reading part of the Gutenberg (free ASCII)
edition of the "Tao Te Ching", and the writer says

"everyone else seems to know what's going on and I alone am stupid; I
am the one who does not know the answer and can find no satisfaction
in my viewpoint. Yet I know the embrace of my mother, the Tao."

(I think that "Tao Te Ching" literally means something like "the
classic way of life".)

No recommendations, here, just comments :)

Have a nice day
