I like this, and I don't usually like inspirational stuff.

If only it were so simple.....
The real Lost Generation of the Gertrude Stein variety would have said it far more succinctly. Perhaps like Hemingway's
"If you're any damned good at all, everything is your own damn fault"
Bring up the reserves to the Main Line Of Resistance.
"Turne ye to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope,
even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee:"


"Or fill high hawkfell of my hand,
with skalds reward for skilled word?"

~~~Egill Skallagrimssøn, c.974

"It shall rain for forty days and forty nights, until your vile odour is cleansed."
