Take it Lightly

"It is truly strange how long it takes to get to know oneself. I am now sixty-two years old, yet just one moment ago I realised that I love lightly toasted bread. Simultaneously, I also realised that I loath bread when it is heavily toasted. For over sixty years, and quite unconsciously, I have been experiencing inner joy or total despair at my relationship with grilled bread."

Ludwig Wittgenstein. Cambridge, 27 April 1951
