life is gangly ... it hairs away from you

About: A Non-Programmer's Apology (Aaron Swartz: The Weblog)

source: my commment
I think life is gangly ... it hairs away from you. That is, it will hair away from (diverge from) your rationalizations of what you intend to do. Then if you look at your reasons a couple decades after you concocted them, you will certainly laugh. Reason more accurately falls after the fact and there too it finds no more value than before. But go ahead ... reason away ... for that appears to be what you do.  Have you considered being a politician or a lawyer?
