They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary
– Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
|But the whole vital process of the Earth takes place so gradually and in periods of time which are so immense compared with the length of our life, that these changes are not observed, and before their course can be recorded from beginning to end whole nations perish and are destroyed.
