We live to find out what we can do and what we have no business doing. We live to know what our limits are. We can't just be afraid of what they might be. And we can't be thinking we can do anything we want. We are limited by our interests, capabilities/abilities... I thought I would be a fine saxophone player, until I met sharps and flats, and discovered that rhythm was important. I sold my saxophone for what I paid for it, and felt like I had won the lottery. After nearly 78 years, I have a good idea of what I need to be doing and what I need to leave alone. That is one of the things living a long time is good for. We live to find out who we are, and who we are not. And to die being the one with all our heart, and not being the other for anything at all.
