The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“We all experience many freakish and unexpected events – you have to be open to suffering a little. The philosopher Schopenhauer talked about how out of the randomness, there is an apparent intention in the fate of an individual that can be glimpsed later on. When you are an old guy, you can look back, and maybe this rambling life has some through-line. Others can see it better sometimes. But when you glimpse it yourself, you see it more clearly than anyone.” – Viggo Mortensen, actor and author of Coincidence of Memory


  1. I appreciate Viggo’s simple statement, “you have to be open to suffering a little.”

    Indeed, taking that attitude helps me in facing the possible futures. Purposely allowing myself some suffering each day supports my chances of survival in tough situations. I hope.

    Carry on.
