Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however. Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. Believing is one thing, doing another. Many talk like the sea but their lives are stagnant marshes.

Others raise their heads above the mountain tops, while their souls cling to the dark walls of caves The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. 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?

There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all. Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream. Nothing determines who we will become so much as those things we choose to ignore. An objective without a plan is a dream. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.
