Good Words

From Hugh MacLeod's Gaping Void

From the season finale of "Heroes":

“. . . perhaps we’d be better off not looking at all. Not delving. Not yearning. But that’s not human nature. Not the human heart. And, it’s not why we’re here. Yet still we struggle to make a difference. To change the world. To dream of hope. Never knowing for certain who we will meet along the way. Who among the world of strangers will hold our hand. Touch our hearts. And share the pain of trying.”

“So much struggle for meaning. For purpose. And in the end, we find it only in each other. Our shared experience of the fantastic, and the mundane. The simple human need to find a kindred. To connect. And to know in our hearts that we are not alone.”

That's beautiful and true. Life can be such a tightrope - sometimes we're hanging on to maintain control and other times we open our hearts and just fall.
