I'm often surprised when someone younger than 1951 turns up for a Quirkeries quotes.
I'm always happy when a quote has some quiet humor in it.
But my favorite part of using quotations is learning about someone I've never heard of before, an ancient whose wisdom is still being heard.
I read last week if the ancient Greeks walked the earth today they would be many times smarter than we are, we dumb down everything, take the easy roads, and study hard at pointless knowledge.
I'm reminded by this card to never stop seeking wisdom.
"Ignorance is the night of the mind, a night without moon or stars." ~ Confucius 551-479 BCE
The cards open previously closed doors to my own heart with their merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
