It is, I suppose, not altogether unlikely that one who has for so long exerted himself to the utmost of extremities of thought should now find himself in a weekened state. Indeed, while I find myself with no lack of worthy and urgent tasks, the motivation which usually possesses me seems to have carried on without me.
Which is just as well. I have a large choice in front of me, and I need the wisdom to act rightly more than the impetus to accomplish.
I have recently revisited Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson.
Boswell was rather much a groupie in his attitude of Johnson, but that is OK. The book is worth reading, though not all at once. Interesting quotes.
(never finished this post, but useful anyway. I made my decision, which is yes. The college made their decision, which is yes. Now it's time to be motivated, and I am pleased to announce that the motivation is there)
