maybe



you know those half-hidden paths that look like there's something terribly exciting waiting for you just beyond the bend...since i was a small child i thought that as long as they are there, and as long as i'd believe in their promise i'll be all right. these days i use them to counteract the "this chapter needs substantial reworking"-in-red-pen-comments every time i send something to my supervisor. they are also great for erradicating feelings of self-pity.

The Way of learning to be great consists in manifesting a clear character, loving the people and abiding in the highest good.
Only after knowing what to abide in can one be calm. Only after having been calm can one be tranquil. Only after having achieved traquility can one have peaceful response. Only after having peaceful response can one begin to deliberate. Only after deliberation can the end be attained. Things have their roots and branches. Affairs have their beginnings and their ends. To know what is first and what is last will lead one near the Way.
