Life is like a dirty hardwood floor. At first glance it appears clean, or at least “good enough.” But then you notice a speck or a smudge, so you get on your hands and knees and examine more closely at the corners to reveal the sea of junk that has accumulated.

I guess the only difference is that while you get immediate satisfaction with a pile of dirt, in life you don’t truly understand how much you’ve changed it until much later in retrospect.
