Why do you want to know something that can only make you miserable?
Do not mistake what is truly useful for what is merely true
Watch your diet, exercise, balance your checkbook
Enjoy the stained glass of churches and museums
Each luminous fragment of meaning arranged in painless beauty
Like shells scattered on a beach by a storm
Like the endless light of shattered stars 
Something made beautiful by one catastrophe after another.
