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?

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.

A working definition of Honor is,
"respect or esteem that has been earned."

self-respect and self-esteem.

upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures
