“We are our choices.” -Jean-Paul Sartre
We are set apart not by the size of our wanting, but by the intensity of our doing.
“What do I want?” reveals my fantasies but determines nothing.
“What am I willing to pay?” reveals my character and determines everything.
A man’s life equals what he actually chooses to create. Beyond that, there is nothing else.
Without focused action, a life and its dreams are condemned to the status of an aimlessly wandering ghost with neither a voice to tell its story nor a body with which to make its presence felt.
