The Sum

Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.

(Jose Ortega y Gasset, Spanish Intellectual and Lecturer)

The desire that we have, the yearning for what we want to be is never given it is earned. The phrase "you have to pay your dues" is so very true yet so very simple that many individuals do not get its meaning. To get where you want to be you have to be focused on your objective, persistent and patient.
