Perhaps we are always being tested evaluated graded. Separated by size or otherwise. Perhaps in the end it will all depend on that. AFRAID?

Or are you CONFIDENT you have done very well and will definitely pass with honors?

    Of course we're always being tested.  The purpose of a test is to see whether the student learned the lesson being taught.  Many times the test is for the benefit of the student, not the teacher.  In school we'e graded on how well we parroted back the information on a test.  There are no grades in the tests of life.  They are pass or fail.  Sometimes we squeak by, other times not.  Sometimes a test will be administered over and over until the student learns the lesson.   Sometimes failing a test can be fatal.  Some tests are easy, others are hard.  Sometimes even when we learn the lesson and pass the test, a refresher quiz will "pop up" to keep us in line.

    Some of the tests in my life I've passed with flying colors (at least I think so ..  a "pop quiz" may reveal otherwise). Other tests I'm still in the process oif taking. And there are some tests that I'll just never pass (the lesson just doesn't sink in).

    Most folks focus on the temporal. Pols especially and those who embrace them. The here and now is all they care about. No matter what they say watch what they do. Fools the lot of them. They are incapable of learning anything. Grab and go with gusto. That's the extent of their philosophy. The comeuppance for them will be severe. Nothing they didn't work hard for and earn. Take the cash and let the credit. Nor heed the rumble of a distant drum. Thank you for your reply Shuhak! :)
