Leaky

As Plato puts it, we are like leaky vessels. It is as though we were containers into which we keep pouring things, but we never get filled up because there is a hole in each container and something is always leaking out. So we spend our lives trying to attain fullness, satisfaction, and completeness, and yet we never do. We go on thinking that if only we had just a bit more, then we would be satisfied; if we had something else, then our potential would be realized, our happiness assured, and our fulfillment achieved.

— Diogenes Allen

It sucks but..

there is a hole in each container and something is always leaking out.

My leaky vessel is lined with "something" sucking maggots that create black hole leakage.
was that Plato, or Jeremiah? I get confused. ;o]
