I Know Things
I think I’m on the right track.
I know I can lead a contented life, given my current circumstances.
I don’t know if this will always hold true.
I know democracy is superior to every other form of governance so far conceived by mankind.
I hope we discover an even better form – a government based on thoughtful, intelligent discourse rather than mind-numbing political rhetoric.
I know one day we’ll cure MS.
I fear it will be too late for me.
I know Lance Armstrong cheated in a big way.
I’m pretty sure Tom Brady didn’t cheat in even a small way, because he said so, and he’s freaking Tom Brady.
I know that I if I write a little every day, I’ll finish my book.
I wonder, though, if I’ll ever consider myself a writer.
I know questions of a moral nature are best resolved by choosing the path that maximizes human well-being.
I believe, eventually, this concept will win the day.
I know I love my wife more than anything.
I hope she understands this, even if I don’t say it often enough.
I know that tomorrow the sun will rise in the east and set in the west.
I still believe each day has the potential to be amazing.
I know that, like everybody, one day I’ll die.
But I still have a lot of living left to do.
What do you know?
