Thought for the day

When you try to climb a mountain to prove how big you are, you almost never make it.  And even if you do it’s a hollow victory.  In order to sustain the victory, you have to prove yourself again and again in some other way, and again and again and again, driving forever to fill a false image, haunted by the fear that the image is not true and someone will find out.  That is not the way.
