Some thoughts

“You will be what you will to be;
  Let failure find its false content
  In that poor word, ‘environment,’
But spirit scorns it, and is free.

“It masters time, it conquers space;
  It cowes that boastful trickster, Chance,
  And bids the tyrant Circumstance
Uncrown, and fill a servant’s place.

“The human Will, that force unseen,
  The offspring of a deathless Soul,
  Can hew a way to any goal,
Though walls of granite intervene.

“Be not impatient in delay,
  But wait as one who understands;
  When spirit rises and commands,
The gods are ready to obey.”

From “As A Man Thinketh” by James Allen
