They adventure least who need most to find, youth of heart with age of mind.

150: If what’s best is truth

Enough of this, reasoning dissonance and tactical logic – the reality is not always what logical deems. Safety in careful successes can hide the confronting facts of our meagreness of which disaster reminds us, compelling a fundamental modesty in the face of overruling chance. Intuition, at times bears a profoundly accurate foreknowledge of buried abilities and happier days to come, goading thee finally to leap at an unlikelihood with improvised optimism. Sometimes what we can know by study and experience tires, leaving after some speculations for intuitive action to resolve with informed spontaneity. Sometimes, the theories are too tormenting, – tardy to proof, and say what you will of this, but within reason if not comprehension, irrationality of means may to rational ends; often falling informs best.

In cowardice too often we smother our preferred or truest intentions for customary ideas less removed of tact. This when the eye concedes more risk than the hands can overcome, and with regularity becomes the automation, strengthened in its exercise. Who then wants to strive and fall short again, having not leapt a full leaps power, dwelling already his soon regrets? He may still, if only to find solace amid confusion of repair.

Hitherto every energy has allowed to being surpassed by a nobler action only thought of. And we know of diviner depths which we cannot articulate, where springs a tendency of genius so frighteningly accurate that surely some fatal misstep awaits, and so reason to curtail its directing. And has anything lately startled you truly out of all propriety? Remind yourself then, of when some spontaneity has occurred that you did not make your own; that you did not survive, or that ever failed to elevate you to new intellectual strengths, and you will not recall an occasion. As though we should snuff out the candle once in a while, and there in the dark by an innateness somehow will we reach out only for what’s needed.

106: Improve

Improve every opportunity to sit aside passivity, with other reckless seekers, and exchanging such acumen as have lifted cities, pursue all that is truth and betterment for all.
