I buy things with the best of intention of living in them and then life intercedes.
At 88 years old - with every intention of living decades longer - I'm still running a company, writing articles, launching new ventures, and fully enjoying life.
I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
Do not dare to live without some clear intention toward which your living shall be bent. Mean to be something with all your might.
If you cannot live with hope and create with intention or be kind to a stranger, bury your head. You are not living at all.
Intention without action is useless.
I'm not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I'm living on.
With all due disrespect...
