"I intend truth, but some of what I believe to be true is doubtless untrue."
"'Everything is going according to plan,' Christian says. 'Just not the plan you made.'"
They could apply to writing. Or life in general. We are always aiming at truth, but we're never sure what we might have wrong. We must be confident, even while we know we're not perfect. We weave coherent narratives, knowing that any thread could loosen and start the unraveling if our understanding changes.
We plan even though we know our span of control is limited, and things will happen that we can't predict.
