This is the second of an occasional series of short posts dealing with life problems affecting (but surely not unique to) my own breed.
- Have you ever aspired to overtake a high speed train?
- Are you convinced you really could bring down a Monarch of the Glen?
- Winged flight - do you feel our feathered friends have an unfair advantage?
Todays today's topic is:
Excess of Ambition versus Realistic Goals…
|I could run faster than that train if only I were allowed.|
|The scent of a deer! I'm after it. Of course my legs are long enough...|
|One day I'll grow wings...|
William Shakespeare (Macbeth)
I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself,
And falls on th'other. . . .
