To Choose

To live is to choose. Those who through a childish notion of what fullness implies want to lose none of their human inheritance, sacrifice nothing, give up nothing, lose out in spreading themselves too thin...Fullness cannot be an accumulation of successes and activities in every possible human domain.

When we are young it is still possible to fool ourselves by charging to the future what the present still lacks. Sooner or later, however, we have to wake up. Behind every objective we attain there gradually take shape ten others...We have to renounce far more than we accomplish.
