When you work, work through feeling too tired to work anymore, work through wanting to quit, work though hating the work, work until it hurts, and then keep working. The really good stuff always comes to you after that.
… to put our faith in tangible goals would seem to be, at best, unwise. So we do not strive to be firemen, we do not strive to be bankers, nor policemen, nor doctors. WE STRIVE TO BE OURSELVES.
Beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life. Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life.
… it is not necessary to accept the choices handed down to you by life as you know it. There is more to it than that— no one HAS to do something he doesn’t want to do for the rest of his life. But then again, if that’s what you wind up doing, by all means convince yourself that you HAD to do it. You’ll have lots of company.

What an incredible aerial photo of Atlanta! That’s a combo of Midtown (on the left) and Downtown (on the right) towers in the center of the photo, as seen from the west. You can just make out the two water reservoirs in front of the Midtown buildings.
That tangle of rail lines in the center at the very bottom is the massive Inman Yard freight rail complex. If you ever get a chance to see that sucker close up, do so. It’s mind-blowing in size.
Beautiful shot of my home city.
