If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? she asked. Where do you want to go? was his response. I don't know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn't matter.

Beautiful quote!
I'd have lots of things to say about confusion; sometimes I just look and look again everywhere for answers that just lie somewhere in my head :)

Yes, i think that we often stubbornly convince ourselves that we are the rulers of ourselves and the world around us.But as much as we try to control everything, we spend most of our time in confusion, hesitation, doubt.
I guess the key is to accept confusion and chaos when you cannot avoid it, and learn to swim in it when you must..
