“I think, therefore I am.” — Rene Descartes

“I consciously arrive at decisions about ‘who’ I want to be, ‘what’ I want to achieve, and ‘how’ I plan to get done whatever it is I seek to accomplish, therefore I am.”

Consciousness and individuality can be reduced to sum total of aspirations, goals, and values.

Herding behavior connotes non-uniqueness, is contrary to consciousness and individuality.

Whenever aspiration is well defined, there comes a time when in a particular context there is an end to goals and objectives. Retirement subjugates goals to aspirations.

Neither of Republicans nor Democrats will have opportunity for producing great leaders if they never work together for the common good.

Winston Churchill is not remembered for winning arguments between Britain and Germany that led to the Second World War. He is remembered for his ingenuity, tenacity, and moral rectitude at engaging Germany in war. He is remembered for aspiration, goals, and values.

Lennox Lewis is not remembered for arguing about whether or not he ought to fight John Ruiz. He is remembered for beating in succession, Evander Holyfield, Rahsim Rahman, Mike Tyson, and Vitali Klitschko. More importantly, he is remembered as one of those boxers who mastered the art and science of boxing.

Sometimes it is fools who win arguments because the wise walk away.
