To search for truths

Many of those who start searching will not find any opals.
Many of those who devote their lives to dig themselves deeper and deeper
into the earth, will come back empty-handed.

How would you handle a failure like this?
What would you tell your old friends and family?
Would you lie and say that you really did find some beautiful opals
but that you sold them, and then you lost all the money,
or, would you prefer to be honest
and explain that you have wasted many, many years of your life
in this stupid search after illusions?
