If i can't do
what i want to do
then my job is to not
do what i don't want
to do


It's not the same thing
but it's the best i can
do


If i can't have
what i want .
.
.
then my job is to want what i've got and be satisfied that at least there is something more to want Since i can't go where i need to go .
.
.
then i must .
.
.
go where the signs point through always understanding parallel movement isn't lateral When i can't express what i really feel i practice feeling what i can express and none of it is equal I know but that's why mankind alone among the animals learns to cry
