Amazing Quote

My friend has this quote on his desk in a little frame. It is really quite wonderful:

It is truly strange how long it takes to get to know oneself. I am now sixty two years old, yet just one moment ago I realised that I absolutely love lightly toasted bread. Simultaneously, I also realised that I loathe bread when it is heavily toasted. For almost sixty years, and quite unconsciously, I have been experiencing inner joy or total despair at my relationship with grilled bread.
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Cambridge, 27 April 1951
