My life is for itself and not for a show. It shall exclude example and experience.
Learn simple methods for lifting your general feeling of well-being right away, and improving your mood over time. The moment you take genuine self-sourced and original action, nobody will pity you. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence… But man postpones or remembers; he does not live in the present, but with reverted eye laments the past, or, heedless of the riches that surround him, stands on tiptoe to foresee the future.

This immense, mysterious existence is expressing itself everywhere at every moment. Where was the genius who could have taught Shakespeare? We respect and admire the brave heroes of the past because they were true to themselves. The greatness of the universe cannot be expressed by cowards. We regret the past or yearn for it; we strain our minds to perceive the future; we dismiss the wonder of what is here now. We get new modes of transportation and lose some health from our drop in exercise. You will be a cause, a creator, an architect of a new world, as all great souls have been who had the guts to see the world with honest eyes. The weak mind will stop seeking and consider the new philosophy the only truth and will refuse to understand how anyone else could see the light without the particular teachings of this one master.
They will admire and emulate you, now and in generations to come. Especially when the feeling is an appropriate response to reality? Know your worth and keep your feet on the ground. Shakespeare was a poet, so he often inverts sentences and uses unusual phrases in order to make things sound poetic. Do and say what makes you feel serene and content at the core of your being. That's what I hope happens after you read my translation.
Get the translation above in book form. You will not be following any known path because you are making a path. Do not weep for younger years or think things will be great only when you get older.

But the light will shine on any open mind. Self-reliance is based on the fundamental belief that you can, and should, change and control your circumstances. It only requires honesty to open the door, and it will happily beam bright and warm into the humblest shack. Don't concern yourself with what you have said or done in the past.
Accept it and make something magnificent with it. He argues individuals, like Moses, Plato, and Milton, are held in the highest regard because they spoke what they thought. But after I learned it, I understood better what was going on when I watched the movie again. Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to that or this; the only right is what is after my constitution; the only wrong what is against it. That feeling is far more valuable than the statements themselves. When a person recognizes the truth of something, all former teachings crumble to dust and blow away.

You have shut yourself off from your own freedom and power in order to keep them safe from a painful truth, or merely to keep them liking you. Do not sneak around, afraid, as if you had no right to be what you are. I am ruined or not, beaten or not, depending on what I say to myself. Nobody knows what your special gifts are, and you won't know until you try to express them.
