If you're in tune with The Way Things Work, then they work the way they need to, no matter what you think about it at the time. Later on, you can look back and say,
"Oh, now I understand. That had to happen so that those could happen, and those had to happen in order for this to happen..."
Then you realize that even if you'd tried to make it all turn out perfectly, you couldn't have done better, and if you'd really tried, you would have made a mess of the whole thing.
~Benjamin Hoff in The Tao of Pooh. (Penguin 1982.)
