~old man G— to Monseigneur Bienvenu Myriel” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
There is a fine line between perseverance and insanity.
At what point have you tried your best,
and it’s time to do something different?
It’s a balance – a paradox.
If you get in the habit of giving up
as soon as something gets difficult,
your life won’t work,
but if you keep tilting at windmills –
madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won’t work.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
