--One cannot have what one wants
Unless one wants what one has.
--One cannot love oneself
Unless one's self is loving.
--One cannot control one's temper
Unless one tempers one's control.
--One cannot fail for long
Unless one longs to fail.
--One cannot live in another's shadow
Unless one shadows another.
--One cannot gain another's trust
Unless one trusts another.
--One cannot be contented
Unless one is contented by being.
--One cannot be loving
Unless one loves being.
