Ecce Homo

All of us are works in progress, or rather, works that shall never be completed. It is just a futile attempt to complete ourselves, self-realization can never be achieved. Do not tidy your room (your books, pictures, tools, ideas) so that when you die, the image of your room will demonstrate “you” as you are, it will demonstrate through you the tragedy of human being as a work in progress that can never be completed.

Caravaggio, Ecce Homo (1605)
