    Wise words from a wise man. Reminds me of the story of 'Robert Bruce and the spider'. (Report) Reply

    This is true unless you never stop falling, then you should try something lest you die a failure.

    When one is not meant to do something, trying endlessly serves no purpose, but your message is well-understood by me. I am not picking on your good poem; I am just saying these things to enrich my comments.

    Keep on writing! .

    Thanks, Luis. Yes, doing the Same thing over and over and getting the same results is the definition of insanity
