A man's life is a rhythm. Eating, sleeping, working, playing, loving, thinkingeverything. And when we live so that each activity comes at the right interval, we gain power. When one interrupts another, we lose. Weakness is merely the thrust of one impulse against another, instead of their combined thrust against the world.
What an insidious drug memory can be. Especially the memory of unhappiness.
There is such a thing as the wrong woman. She makes a man a fraction.... But the right woman! She multiplies a man.
