All the world Began With A Yes

“All the world began with a yes. One molecule said yes to another molecule and life was born. But before prehistory there was the prehistory of the prehistory and there was the never and there was the yes. It was ever so. I don’t know why, but I do know that the universe never began.
Make no mistake, I only achieve simplicity with enormous effort.”
~ Clarice Lispector, Writer ~ 1920 – 1977

  1. Speaking of “I don’t know why,” I don’t know how “the universe never began” flows logically from what was said before that, but I still like the quote.

  2. The universe always existed. I think that’s true. I think it may come to a point where it starts over, but it always was. Thinking that there was a beginning out of nothing is like the virgin birth. Looks good on a christmas card but it’s not real. I don’t think it began, it just was. That’s really hard, if not impossible to understand, since we always have beginnings and endings, but our minds are limited. If we fell through space, we’d just keep falling, unless we hit something. Noting having a beginning is tough but there had to be something to begin int he first place, so there never was a time when there was nothing. Makes perfect sense. 🙂 Yay.
