who knows

        A while ago, I bought an amaryllis bulb and put it in a closet and forgot about it. When I found it by accident a few weeks later, a green shoot had squeezed its way through an opening in the box and out the top. So I took it downstairs and planted it and watered it and put it on the kitchen windowsill and watched. Some days it grew a whole inch. Then four little buds appeared, and each one turned into a red velvet blossom fit for a king. All that fun and life and beauty was waiting in a bulb in a box in a dark closet. It sure makes you wonder.

“There is no use trying. One can’t believe impossible things," said Alice. “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland
