All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.
Ah, so this means Waiting for Godot is all about human wisdom? I wonder.
I had not connected it to Beckett, but I see your point. I was surprised by it. I don't usually think of wisdom when I think of Dumas, whose books I loved when I was a kid. But this statement is wise. We wait for death and hope for the best.
