Look not for great approval from the world. It cannot give it to you. And, if it does, it is little enough. Even when it is grand, it is little. A bouquet the world sends disappoints. Having it, you see it is only approval, and you know that approval, by its nature short-lived, comes and goes in the same breath. Soon enough, the world forgets and you are left holding nothing. The world’s approval isn’t something to live for. All the plaudits of the world, no matter how honest and deserved, pall next to the joy of listening to you own heart and following it for its own sake, for your heart is your stake in life. Anything else is less.
