The END of anything/any human counts more than its/his/her beginning. Yes of course, it's only he/she that endures to the end or rather holds firm to his/her faith that will be saved at last. Moreover, it's the end of a vision/aspiration/dream that proves whether it's ordinary or extraordinary, true or false. Also, it's he/she that perseveres/persists to the end that can/will leap or reap the reward for hard-work i.e. genuine success. Likewise, it's he/she that eventually reaches or crosses the finish line that emerges a winner in a race. Besides, it's your last thoughts/words/actions that will determine your salvation or damnation on the day of reckoning. As a matter of fact, it's better for you to begin badly in anything/something and afterwards end up well in it. Than for you to begin well in something/anything and afterwards end up badly in it. For, that will entail nothing else but a tragedy. Anyway, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies that, the END of anything/something/any human truly counts more than its/his/her beginning. Therefore, I urge you to be more concerned with what will be your end or the end of anything/anyone rather than your/its/his/her beginning. Because, surely the END of everything/human/matter is ever the BOTTOM LINE. You can say I said so.
The gap between ideals and actualities, between dreams and achievements, the gap that can spur strong men to increased exertions, but can break the spirit of others -- this gap is the most conspicuous, continuous land mark in American history. It is conspicuous and continuous not because Americans achieve little, but because they dream grandly. The gap is a standing reproach to Americans; but it marks them off as a special and singularly admirable community among the world's peoples.
The pursuit of happiness" is an American myth. The ideologies and governments of this century that promised happiness, have left people with more material possessions, but less psychological well-being. Many of the citizens are emotionally bankrupt and unhappy. The demands of life in our current socioeconomic system require that we keep running and running with little or no breaks....Like their parents, most of the young professionals will drift through life racing for the "American Dream", going through very expensive trial-and-error lessons and struggling to achieve happiness and fulfillment.
The standard of a true leader is that he sets also his own rules rather than merely and blindly obeying the set of standard rules, even if it means being treated as an idiot or a crazy by the fools. And to follow his noble dream to attain his cherished goal, he employs his wisdom tool gained from his own hard core experience in an open school called life.
The trebling of the population in this small and impoverished country, flowing with milk and honey but not with sufficient water, rich in rocks and sand dunes but poor in natural resources and vital raw materials, has been no easy task Indeed, practical men, with their eyes fixed upon things as they are, regarded it as an empty and insubstantial utopian dream.
The works of women are symbolical. We sew, sew, prick our fingers, dull our sight, producing what? A pair of slippers, sir, to put on when you're weary -- or a stool. To stumble over and vex you... curse that stool! Or else at best, a cushion, where you lean and sleep, and dream of something we are not, but would be for your sake. Alas, alas! This hurts most, this... that, after all, we are paid the worth of our work, perhaps.
