Circles

Posted on: December 4, 2005

"I really don't want anything. Nothing at all." And he realized how true that was; and how dreadful a thing it had become. "Have you ever got everything you ever wanted? And then realized it wasn't what you wanted at all?"

— Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, p. 247

I can't help but ask myself this question almost every single day the past few months. It's like I want one thing and when I do have it, it still isn't enough. I know that one has to always want a little bit more in order to achieve one's goals. But then life becomes this one whole goal-achieving exercise: you beget another goal after you have achieved the most immediate one. No wonder life is a circle in so many ways.
