"I do not know what is untried and afterwards, but I know it will, in its turn, prove sufficient, and cannot fail."
I want what I want when I want it. Don't we all? But the truth is, if life were easy that way, it might lose some of its appeal. Roadblocks point us to a better way, and delays mean that it's not yet time.
I want things on my terms, but there's a limit to my point-of-view. And if I'm honest with myself, not knowing is exciting in a way. There's a distinctive and delicious pleasure that comes from the intrigue of what I cannot possibly foresee.
If I don't have instantaneous success, it does not mean that I fail, but only that more creativity is required.
