It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
- Proverbs 25:2
When my thoughts turn to my research, I feel a knot in my stomach and a welling up of fear. I feel frustrated and ineffective, as the questions billow and the attempts to find answers either reveal more questions (best case) or reveal dead ends (better than nothing, I suppose). What it really amounts to is wasted time and nothing to show for it.
Perhaps I will feel more cheerful after our free lunch! :)
