C.P. Snow

Snow was interpreting the laws of thermodynamics in an offhand way. You can also understand them as: 1. You can't get more energy out of a system than you put in;

2. you can't even get exactly as much energy out as you put in (some of it will always escape); 3. there's no way around rules 1 and 2.

It speaks to me about expectations in life. You can't expect to get more out of life than you put in, or even as much as you put in,and you can't beat the way life is set up.

My mom had an even easier way of saying it: "Nothing is ever easy."

Well, thanks for clearing that up Soenda. (?)
Me and my Mom need to work even harder.
