Energy and persistence conquer all things. I do not seek. I find. If you do not do it excellently, do not do it at all. Because if it is not excellent, it will not be profitable or fun, and if you are not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there? That which does not kill us makes us stronger. The wisest men follow their own direction.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however. If you are not afraid to face the music, you may someday lead the band. All who seek the roots of life dig in solitude for them. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
