    Somebody asked me, "You've learned to trust people, but doesn't that hurt you?"

    I said, "And you, not trusting? Doesn't that hurt, more"?

    Their response was, "How do you go through all that, and not get twisted?"

    My answer:

    "To seek an understanding of all of the questions, but not the answers."
