We haven't a chance really. A recent report suggested that most of us never get beyond two minutes into our day, without hearing or seeing something from the outside world that is - as Desiderata put it - vexatious to the spirit.

And by the way, I just made that up.

But I'm pretty sure that most of you had no trouble accepting the validity of that "recent report" anyway, including the bit which I have now introduced, whereby you don't even know for sure if what is vexing your spirit is true or false.
