The Law of Success Part 14

Life is an everlasting question mark!
That which we want most is always in the embryonic distance of the future. Our power to acquire is always a decade or so behind our power to DESIRE!
And, if we catch up with the thing we want we no longer want it!
Fortunate is the young woman who learns this great truth and keeps her lover always guessing, always on the defensive lest he may lose her.
Our favorite author is a hero and a genius until we meet him in person and learn the sad truth that after all, he is only a man. "How often must we learn this lesson? Men cease to interest us when we find their limitations. The only sin is limitation. As soon as you once come up with a man's limitations, it is all over with him. " EMERSON."
How beautiful the mountain yonder in the distance; but the moment we draw near it we find it to be nothing but a wretched collection of rocks and dirt and trees.
Out of this truth grew the oft-repeated adage " Familiarity breeds contempt."
