foolish passion.

"Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others won't know we want to do them."

I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.

A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.
