What we anticipate seldom occurs, what we least expected generally happens.
Surprise! What a wonder they are. I have lived long enough to be able to look back on my life and see the times that I believed that my life was just perfect and all I wanted to do was to stop everything and keep it that way, no surprise, just constant, consistent, dependable perfection!
How lucky I was that I did not have that kind of power! I would have missed so much.
Our dislikes of surprise is in direct proportions to our illusion of control.
