Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. Nothing comes from doing nothing. 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? Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps.
All who seek the roots of life dig in solitude for them. Nothing comes from doing nothing. We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. One cannot govern with buts. Once you make the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, any approach you choose to take for your own growth and development can work, and you are especially attracted to those approaches which will work particularly well for you.
