That which is final can’t be finite since it’s impossible to conclude the examination of our ultimate objectives; seeing as the very defining of a motive is a negation due to the fact that raison d’être is always subject to the environment of its formation. Also, a thing outside the frame of thought, that which is tangible, is still a vital part of the whole and although a fragment can be distinguishable from entirety, the whole is not discoverable without reference to the part; just like personality is an expression of character, which is the mould of habit and one cannot expect to fully understand another’s persona outside the context of their activities.
Will power is the most potent tonic, while peril pesters those possessed of petulance, says logic.
Till the plot before sowing if you wish to harvest a good crop, and whatever you attempt… make a good showing before the motion grinds to a stop, says reason.
Certainty comes at a high price but happiness is the harmonious balance between man’s character and his circumstances, says common sense.
Avoid becoming like the vacillating man who is always at the mercy of the opinion of the demagogues he comes across.
Rather, be true to the best you know and strive through observation and study, to think independently by having a healthy indifference to the ideas, interpretations, and suggestions of popular bodies.
Be respectfully unafraid to form your own convictions, and when you have clarity of vision and an adequate understanding of your position and potential; when your grand purpose is indelibly impressed on your mind, dare to act and don’t hesitate!
There is no predestination about success
And it takes one a good many dreams of fortune before they can make an actual dime
But if you have fixity of purpose
And conditions become favourable in time
The stars will align and bless – you’ll realise that without patience and effort you’d have never reached the crest
In a world where the words normal and acceptable are used interchangeably without distinction, it is no wonder that humankind now faces extinction.
On the other hand, reason makes clear that it is better to cede to forces of progression and accept the past cannot escape diminution, than to waste time in contrition.
They all want the elixir
So they can live as long as Old Tom Parr
Forgetting that nature
Will only bestow on those that can nurture
And that to live for posterity, as a man of undying stature
One must etch youthful exuberance on life’s canvas
In the now, never later!
