Learn and then let go

No matter how wonderful an insight, how enlightening an idea, repeat it enough and it becomes a dead thing – a platitude which once was poetry, meaningless words shorn of their power, just another memory – useful, but of diminishing relevance to this vital moment. That is why the lessons of the past should be learned and then let go of, lest they distort our view of the present, which after all has never happened before.
