Frances Wosmek

  • Threads of meaning bind us to every other thing and to each other. Severing too many of the threads results in the death of the spirit. Education strays from reality when it divides its knowledge into separate compartments without due regard to the connection between them.

  • More than likely, we will never achieve the satisfaction of knowing a single 'why' of our becoming, any more than our limited, earthbound brain could ever meaningfully grasp a clear purpose behind the vastness of the universe. Any answer would necessarily include understanding the why of the why, and that would be a little like looking into one's own eyes.

Frances Wosmek, U.S. writer

(1964)
