one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?

in every pursuit or avocation,

She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing:
for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.
