Lay those words into the dead man's grave which he spoke in order to live. (Paul Celan)

Why do we waste our time trying to understand what happened... instead of just letting it go and concentrate on the present and on the future? I know why. When you invest your time and energy in some project, or in someone's friendship and love, and things fail to satisfy you, you feel guilty - you are unhappy even when others, not you, are responsible for the disaster. If we had more time, if we didn't believe that our life is supposed to have some meaning and develop under our own control, maybe we would more easily forget our sins.
