“In Every Life There Are Certain Pauses and Interruptions, Which Force Consideration Upon the Careless.”

“In Every Life There Are Certain Pauses and Interruptions, Which Force Consideration Upon the Careless.”

"It is very happily and kindly provided, that in every life there are certain pauses and interruptions, which force consideration upon the careless, and seriousness upon the light; points of time where one course of action ends and another begins; and by vicissitude of fortune, or alteration of employment, by change of place, or loss of friendship, we are forced to say of something, 'this is the last.'"

-- Samuel Johnson, The Idler, No. 103

Have you experienced a moment like this? A milestone moment, or a change that led to an epiphany about the way your life was proceeding?
