Thinking

Making sense

Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

Auguste Rodin's classic statue 'The Thinker' is one of my favourites. I find it hard to look at without being profoundly moved to a kind of reverence for this type of deep thinking. Perhaps, because it's so uncommon. Having thoughts does not constitute thinking. We all have thoughts. We all have opinions and beliefs; usually lots of them.
