*To attempt perfection, you would have to have some idea what it is. That’s a tall order for the normal, flawed human, to say the least. Choose more reasonable goals, and you’ll experience a lot more success.
*The gentle wind which can refresh you one moment can become a wicked gale, that destroys all you treasure. Enjoy the good while it lasts, but be ready to run for your life if things suddenly change for the worse.
If all men knew what each said of the other, there would not be four friends in the world.
