Salesmen

prey

on neediness

and

Content men

pray

on God.

If God gives us everything,

what do salesmen say?

“God isn’t enough!”

2.

thinking, is about allowing

learning, is about doing

all the rest, is noise.

the person, cannot

open up

to receive

wisdom

when they are full

of crap.

3.

trying, is trying too hard

ambition, requires faith—that yes, this is who I am.

ambition, without faith, is to fill yourself up

with what makes a man sick.

It takes medicine to heal your mind

Only when richness of experience

becomes wealth

does ambition

become real.

Only then,

does it cease to be desire.

4.

When a writer starts writing

he realizes the limits of his world

Most writers

write about themselves.

5.

Seeing someone’s position

can inspire

envy.

Seeing someone take their position

can inspire respect.

Seeing someone

identify with their position

reassures

the wise man, without a position

of the foolishness

that accompanies

the most accomplished.

Position

is constantly changing.

Better to have

no position

and know

who you are.
