Hard Final

Life is like a final examination in a tough course. The underlying precepts are ambiguous, difficult to discern, conflicting, and frequently make no sense. No matter how hard you study, you will find yourself unprepared. There is never enough time to complete and check your work. You must explain your reasoning and show your work in order to get full credit. No erasures are permitted in the blue book.

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Quatrain LXXI

William's Whimsical Words:

Not to worry, though; everyone passes.
