A rose by any other name may smell as sweet, but without it's individual thorns, it would lack uniqueness. It is our imperfections and trivialities that define us as individual beings. The man who spends his entire life lost in the great pursuits, with no time for the lesser, is the man who would go through life enlightened but unnoticed...and no amount of personal enrichment makes complete anonymity desirable.Don't ever change, my friend.
