So we waste our time, admiring, fearing, idolizing what’s not ours. We don’t give ourselves enough credit. If we don’t know about politics or economics or sports or whatever, it’s because we don’t have paid attention. Nothing’s too complex if you put your mind to it. The problem is we don’t want to. We don’t want to. Take your own situation. If you’re returning into an old bachelor, is it because you can’t find a wife or because you don’t want to find a wife? If you were only getting married because it was thing to do, you could find a woman any time. But you don’t, because you don’t want to. Right?
