“I will not dream the dreams of other men.”  — WorldsStrongestLibrarian.com

He’s right.  While we should each draw inspiration from others, my road is my own.  Our roads may cross, they may run parallel, but nobody has walked every step of the way but me, so in the end, the adventures and the destination are wholly mine alone.

I’m reminded of a story I read in a biography of Julius Caesar.  Even Caesar, they say, once wept at a statue of Alexander the Great, feeling that he’d achieved so little in comparison.  Of course, Caesar went on to trigger an empire that far surpassed anything anyone before had achieved, and did it in a way that nobody else had done. 

I don’t really know how to end this, guess I’m still pondering…..

We all look up to greatness
