  1. Oh, I like this one, Alex. It’s a great reminder that we don’t understand everything – not even close – and that learning more is good for all of us.

  2. Alex says

    Exactly, Margot. Learning is a life long process we should embrace. And never forget that we can never understand everything. And isn’t life so much better for that mystery too?

  3. I love this quote. Such a great reminder to stay humble and curious, love it. ❤️

    • Yay, it worked. My comments are finally going through (doing a little happy dance). 😂

      • Alex says

        Lol! And delighted to have you back commenting too, Vera.

    • Alex says

      Indeed, Vera. You nailed it: stay humble and stay curious. 👍

    • La Blonde says

      I think, Sandra, as adults, that’s as close to our childhood innocence as we’re going to get. 😀
