madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won't work.

"respect or esteem that has been earned."
Contemplate that for a moment.

self-respect and self-esteem.

for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator,
while the wolf denounces him for the same act

upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
