Painting by Simon Birch

 “There is no means of testing which decision is better because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself? That is why life is like a sketch. No, ‘sketch’ is not quite the word, because a sketch is an outline for something, the groundwork for a picture, whereas the picture that is our life, is a sketch for nothing, an outline with no picture.”

– Milan Kundera
