A Quote by Thornton Niven Wilder on blindness, existence, feeling, happiness, ignorance, mercy, passion, and time

That's what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those about you. To spend and waste time as though you had a million years. To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another. Now you know - that's the happy existence you wanted to go back to. Ignorance and blindness.

Thornton Wilder (1897 - 1975)
