Say What Friday

Hello from the currently dry Gulf Coast.

This week's quote is....

"True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing."


Socrates

Do with it what you will.

Rewards are as usual me cheering you on or adding words to my wips.

a tiny bit from a longer WIP that allowed me to use this quote's influence :

A man is really wise when he realizes he does not know everything…even about himself.
One of David’s many psychiatric workers had said that to him once, and it was a lesson David had taken to heart. Accepting that a fair deal of what his senses told him about the world was all in his head, accepting that he did not always know what was real and what was not, had been crucial in coming to terms with his illness. The double diagnosis of schizophrenia and PTSD had been a hard blow, but having those explanations for things that happened to him took some of the distress away when they did happen.
Like waking up to find the bed collapsed, the mirror broken, pictures on walls askew, objects knocked from the tops of dresser and shelves and desk. He might never know HOW these things happen, why he did them, but he had accepted that he was the one to do them during black spots in his memory.
What he did not accept was the whispers The Program poured into his ear as he got up from the floor and began to put the bed back together.
