"How easily we get caught up in defining who we are in relation to those around us... I have lived enough in the world to know by now that this is how our ambitions often evolve. We first find ourselves alone in the joy of what we're doing. But somehow, there are suddenly others along the way, and we lapse into the breathless race of comparison, and then we are hopelessly running to avoid being termed a failure."---an excerpt in Mark Nepo's "The Book of Awakening"
