I believe this essay has many different meanings. I take it to be discouraging because they describe the long lives tortoises have compared to ours. Almost making us seem small. However, it also shows at the same time, how big we are. Hummingbirds have such fragile, short lives compared to us. Making us seem big. My favorite line is "We open windows to each but we live alone in the house of the heart". I agree with this because no matter how much other's affect us, it is ourselves that affect us the most( our hearts).

There are many things in the world that is worth knowing. I believe in society the best thing to know is the best way to continue on your path. For example, if you want to become a Doctor, something worth knowing for you is the best way to become one. This is the most valuable information for that person. Something else is to figure out environmental issue solutions. We have many problems like rain forest being cut down. The world is crying out for solutions to these problems. But unimportant information is still worth knowing because learning is being human. Things we learn every day fascinate us. In conclusion, nothing is not worth knowing.
