you will know when it’s right.

I’ve just finished reading a lovely novel, Delicacy (by David Foenkinos), and just as how bits and pieces of good books stay in your mind long after you’ve turned the final page and placed the book back on the shelf, this quote by a Polish philosopher remained ingrained in mine:
“There are incredible people
Whom we meet at the wrong moment.
And there are people who are incredible
Because we meet them at the right moment.”
The right moment doesn’t come along as often as we’d like it to, but perhaps that’s why it’s pure magic when it does. And the scarcity of catching or even being aware of that fleeting moment should make us all the more appreciative of the times when we do encounter a brush with kismet.
After all, it’s not often when someone ordinary in your life today becomes someone extraordinary tomorrow.
