"It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning." P.D. Ouspensky

Correction from Oroboros: "I trust you know the pic is of Gurdjieff? Ouspensky was his student before breaking with him and settling in England with his own circle of students."
Thanks for the correction! See comments for recommended reading list.
