UnRead Quote: The Sense of an Ending

“But time … how time first grounds us and
then confounds us. We thought we were being
mature when we were only being safe.
We imagined we were being responsible but
were only being cowardly. What we called
realism turned out to be a way of avoiding
things rather than facing them.
Time … give
us enough time and our best-supported decisions
will seem wobbly, our certainties
whimsical.”

      Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending
