We see more than we admit yet often pursue less than we desire. Some people refrain because the claims of success are too demanding, according to their standards. Others ignore because they aren't sure of themselves. Even so, we still see whether or not we seize accordingly.

We have too much energy, more in fact than we need. Else we wouldn't desire to do the exceptional deed, by which it would be drained and we would gain a new image of ourselves. Presently, however, our endeavors neither demand greatness nor reveal our uniqueness. We get by instead as if we are bred all the same, with nothing significant to distinguish our frame. http://www.joelbryant1.com/

The desire to be seen is so insidious. It makes us say what we shouldn't and act as we wouldn't if we were content with ourselves. www.joelbryant1.com

Shallow is the marrow of most bones.

Those who would astound must not be found in the crowd, because most people are so fickle that all they can do is tickle mutual fears. (www.joelbryant1.com

If you can get through today with all of its weight, you can win tomorrow despite the sorrow that threatens or the desires that are waiting to be fulfilled. If you don't, someone else will. It's not that they're better than you. They're just more willing to do what it takes to out-wait the cycles of success, which none can rush.

The strong survive because they insist on life. They are strong moreover because they discover that the secret is in letting weakness nurture strength, not accuse it. Thus they accept their limits without being inhibited thereby. Instead, they pursue what they desire and endure the ire of circumstances. 'Tis by this that they make their advances.

In our will to rule we waste and ruin.

Our age yet awaits its Arthur, a king so keen that he can not only extract Excalibur but also exalt humanity simultaneously. We have sought vainly politically. It has the words but not the will to redeem, especially if redemption benefits universally. It would rather palaver than pull the sword, being bound by allegiances too narrow to hold. Even so, the age awaits Arthur's emergence and groans daily for his appearance. Many contend, and even more pretend because they know instinctively their hypocrisy. Yet the opportunity entices. Afterwards, however, Excalibur remains and they leave with sore hands. Even then, however, the age awaits. It can do no less if it would survive. (http://www.joelbryant1.com/ )

The problem isn't with success but with our willingness to be seduced by easy formulas that promise to produce. Success is possible but it isn't as docile as some people claim. Those who say such only seek to make a name for themselves based on our fears. (www.joelbryant1.com)
