Whether Edison is right or not, his words sometimes make me just want to pack it in and go fishing. While at other times, they are a call to celebrate that we can and indeed do know something – of God, of the world, of ourselves. Thus I inevitably turn to Churchill: ‘Keep buggering on!’
Why? Because ‘now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love’. (1 Corinthians 13:12-13).
Note: There’s a good wee post on Churchill here.
