Intelligence (November 1, 1980)

Begins with the dark, hard evaluation of one’s self;

It fundamentally thrives on the realization of ones own limitations.

It encourages hope in the for better results in the shallowness of one’s own accomplishments.

True intelligence comes from one’s ability to realize how little one really understands and how little a consequence one’s existence really is: Yet it fosters a drive to continue on.

Realist vs Idealist (December 12, 1980)

The realist sees what is and remembers what was;

The idealist sees what is and dreams of what could be.

The realist struggles through life never achieving while the idealist struggles through life never satisfied.
