Bierce on Oceans and Irony Title Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by American journalist, poet, Civil War veteran and author of “the Devil's Dictionary,” named as one of “The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature” by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration, Ambrose Bierce.

Bierce on Oceans and Irony Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man — who has no gills.”
— Ambrose Bierce

The irony of nature is all around us. As the great Ambrose Bierce reminds us, we live on a planet that’s mostly water, yet we can’t drink that water, nor can we breathe it. It’s the same situation with much of life. Man has limited resources, limited time and limited energy. Yet for most of us, we want to do it all. Given the finite nature of the time we have on this ocean-dominated planet, doesn’t it just make sense to live life to the fullest, and to maximize the truly important aspects of life such as love, relationships, productive achievement, helping our fellow man? I certainly think so.
