False Start #56

Happiness in life often comes down to one thing:

The ability to reconcile the desire to be what one is not.

Ducklings, no matter how ugly, become ducks.

An acorn planted in the ground becomes an oak.

Ceteris paribus, all things being equal

The world is regular, regular to a fault.

And you will give outliers and extraordinary examples,

Swans, trees of life, mundus miraculorum, worlds of wonder

Applying them to yourself with such self-service

Knowing that the easiest person in the world to fool

Is yourself in this desire to be what is not.
