Life will be more than a veil of tears for me; I’m vowed for years of celibacy in the name of ambition. Dum vivimus vivamus! Life stretches before me as a wild asphodel field of opportunity, golden.
“We’re hoping to succeed; we’re okay with failure. We just don’t want to land in between.” –David Chang
“And God has taken a flower of gold
And broken it, and used therefrom
The mystic link to bind and hold
Spirit to matter till death come.”
–Robert Frost “Trial By Existence”
