… that happiness, that grand mistress of the ceremonies
in the dance of life, impels us through all its mazes and meandering,
but leads none of us by the same route.
Charles Caleb Colton said that, and he was right. Therefore,
since there is no One Way to find happiness, why not
find it the way that appeals most to you?
Why not follow your passion —
even if others tell you that you are crazy for trying it?
Exists someone telling you that now?
Don’t listen. Don’t listen to that!
The voice of caution knows nothing of real joy.
What joy is there in doing what there was
no doubt you could do? Where’s the excitement in that?
Hey, try something that you could fail at. Now that’s living.
