Now What?

"We have perhaps a natural fear of ends.  We would rather always be on the way than arrive."

Eric Hoffer
20th century American philosopher

Is that because we know that with most ends there soon follows a new beginning?

The devil you know versus the one you don't?


  1. Maybe it is fearing the future but it can also be about missing the past.

  2. That too. Just like the last day of school we all looked so forward to, until it arrived. Then it was about the friends we wouldn't see anymore, not at least until the next school year started 3 months later.
