Sound Philosophy

“Well, I dunno. There’s things I’d rather not know. Seems to me… there en’t been nothing good for more than about five minutes ahead. Like, I can see now, this bath’s nice, and there’s a nice warm towel there, about five minutes away. And once I’m dry, maybe I’ll think of summing nice to eat, but no further ahead than that. And when I’ve eaten, maybe I’ll look forward to a kip in a comfortable bed. But after that, I don’t know, Lyra. There’s been terrible things we’ve seen, en’t there? And more coming, more’n likely. So I think I’d rather not know what’s in the future. I’ll stick to the present.” — Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass
