We can be bright as thorn-pricks or duller than the dullest dishwater the planet has to offer, but compared to that sun out there, our insignificance is so overwhelming we might as well give up trying to change the world and settle on reading a good book, and if a good book isn’t available, read one of lesser pedigree.

Failing completely to measure up to the morning, we do what we can, just as the ants scurry about toting three times their weight because that’s all they know to do.
