Breathes there the man

‘Breathes there the man’――Sir Walter Scott

I
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

II
O Caledonia! stern and wild,
Meet nurse for a poetic child!
Land of brown heath and shaggy wood,
Land of the mountain and the flood,
Land of my sires! what mortal hand
Can e’er untie the filial band,
That knits me to thy rugged strand!
Still as I view each well-known scene,
Think what is now, and what hath been,
Seems as, to me of all bereft,
Sole friends thy woods and streams were left;
And thus I love them better still,
Even in extremity of ill.
By Yarrow’s streams still let me stray,
Though none should guide my feeble way;
Still feel the breeze down Ettrick break,
Although it chill my wither’d cheek;
Still lay my head by Teviot Stone,
Though there, forgotten and alone,
The Bard may draw his parting groan.

The Difference Between Motivation and Dedication

The biggest difference between motivation and dedication is ACTION. Motivation is the initiative to start a task. It includes a person’s reasons and desires for engaging in a particular behavior to achieve a goal. Dedication goes beyond a mere desire. It is a person’s commitment to following through with behaviors and actions that will lead to the accomplishment of that goal. In other words, motivation does not require action because it is purely an inner desire. Dedication, on the other hand, is both an internal wish as well as physical action and hard work.

Sometimes Motivation grows into Dedication. Sometimes not. Regardless:

Kudos to your valued motivations!

They momentarily obliterate the inertia keeping you from where you are to where you want to be by giving you a chance to come up for a breath of fresh air, perspective, inspiration, and plan for action.

Won? Persevere.

Lost? Persevere.

Keep at it.

Unconditional Positive Regard Is Worth It

This is an attitude of grace, an attitude that values us even knowing our failings. It is a profound relief to drop our pretences, confess our worst feelings, and discover that we are still accepted. In a good marriage, a close family, or an intimate friendship, we are free to be spontaneous without fearing the loss of others’ esteem.

@cableknitjumper Have you heard the Monster Mash?

Amy:

Very troubling that the song “Monster Mash” isn’t the Monster Mash — it’s a song about the Monster Mash, which is not itself heard on the track, and is fundamentally unknowable to us.

Be at ease. The possibility exists for us to hear the Monster-Mash-Universe-Monster-Mash-Song. Although we never listen to it sung, we can listen to it at some point. Here is why:

When The Mad Scientist committed an inter-reality incursion from the Monster-Mash-Universe-Reality to the Our-Universe-Reality, he opened the door to expose that universe to ours. Proof here is that:

  • We can hear him narrating.
  • We can listen to The Crypt-Keepers Five playing the music.
  • We can listen to the backup singers to the Monster-Mash-Universe-Monster-Mash-Song.
  • We know that the singer of Monster-Mash-Universe-Monster-Mash-Song is at the party and wants to sing again: Dracula
  • A person is at the party listening to all this, and it is apparently not you: you are listening to Our-Universe-Monster-Mash-Song
