1. I mean the whole poem is about how you’ll not grasp the ring unless you first pass through the fire. It seems a bit depressing and paternalistic Bronteistic to me .

    Haven’t you hit the jackpot as if by accident? Sure there are dues to be paid, wood to be chopped, and water to be carried, but I’m always prepared to greet the miracle.

    If you’re not prepared to go with the flow, step away from the river.
    -Bill Abrams


  2. Oh I wouldn’t mind riding the current, but I’ve had to paddle upstream more often than not on his journey of mine. Bronte and I have become well acquainted, Bill Abrams​.

    As much as I would like to win the lottery one day, I really don’t believe in luck. Never have.


  3. Well, to tell the truth, I subscribe to Ray Kroc’s notion that luck is a dividend of sweat.  The more you sweat, the luckier you get.

    But I also think that:

    Being open to the good result often leads to a result that’s good. 
    -Bill Abrams

    (This meme stuff is pretty fun.)
