Common sense


A paragraph off C.S. Lewis’s A Grief Observed.

Though story books are entertaining once in awhile, my mind has taken to preferring reads like these. Of reflections and of gaining understanding. As one eats to feed the body, one should read such to feed the mind.

And this paragraph in particular articulates the emotion so aptly. That no amount of common sense would suffice when it comes to matters of love, or love lost.

Which serves as a reminder, that though there may exist academic disciplines which are bound by equations and all things factual, life itself cannot simply be reduced to parts like that that make up math or economics. Much exists in a realm which our limited minds cannot conceptualize, much of which exists outside the realm of common sense and logic.

And if we deny ourselves of that truth, we are missing out the vast beauty of which is life in itself.
