The Unbearable Clarity of Hindsight

“You acted unwisely,” I cried, “as you see

By the outcome.” He solemnly eyes me:

“When choosing the course of my action,” said he,

“I had not the outcome to guide me.”

          Ambrose Bierce, quoted in Plight of the Fortune Tellers by Riccardo Rebonato

  • Great blog, and great theme, btw :) Anyway, this is a nice quote and I am tempted to throw in my favorite one: “Experience is what you gain when you repeat past mistakes.” Oh, and thanks for following me.
