Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

I read allot, tatted up with something that meant something and disappeared for awhile. All I saw was pain, All I felt was loneliness. Then I found my way home and made a new pile of mistakes one right after another until I found good worn leather boots that made me feel at home, and not alone but grounded and comfortably happy/content.
