WINDS OF DESTINY
George Gray just after his dead realised to have not really lived, his life was empty, without emotions. And just now he regrets the real meaning of the life and he realises the biggest mistake he did was to have not fallow the "destiny's winds" that they would let him live fully, because the life's trip is just one. How he says, if one way to live the life in the extreme fullness can lead you to madness, in an another way, the life without meaning will cause pain, because you wish something that for cowardice you cannot have.
I have studied many times
The marble which was chiseled for me--
A boat with a furled sail at rest in a harbor.
In truth it pictures not my destination
But my life.
For love was offered me and I shrank from its disillusionment;
Sorrow knocked at my door, but I was afraid;
Ambition called to me, but I dreaded the chances.
Yet all the while I hungered for meaning in my life.
And now I know that we must lift the sail
And catch the winds of destiny
Wherever they drive the boat.
To put meaning in one's life may end in madness,
But life without meaning is the torture
Of restlessness and vague desire--
It is a boat longing for the sea and yet afraid.
