Persistence

It is too hard to speak English what I want to say. After some lab course,I exhaust myself gauging my English. I think, gauging is not good of me. But I couldn't stop. Sometimes, I talk to myself, "Please, be patient. You are not native speaker. Just keep going. Don't gauge yourself." These talks give me a little help to overcome the depression.

I found the most useful paragraph, written by Calvin Coolidge, to overcome it.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not;nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

Greed

I found the definition of Greed, because English is not my mother language. It is a strong desire that for more food, money, power, possessions etc than you need.

Today, I found two beautiful glasses of Licher beer on the beer box. As soon as I saw these glasses, I felt like taking one of them. No hesitation and no consideration. After all, I asked one friend who is in charge of the beer box to take one of them. He said, "yes, no problem." Finally, I got the glass.

Actually,I don't need more glasses to drink beer. Anyway, one glass is OK, but when I feel more than one glass, how can I control it?

Where does this greed come from?

Frequently,I think some kind of relations between my life and money. I used to do the Lotto for comfort, to relieve burdens of thinking. It is not critical thing, I understand it with my brains. But, all that thinking has addled my brains.

Do I really think winning the lotterywould make me happy? From this traditional question, I can answer "No,I don't." "But but, but,......... " I could not stop keeping thinkingthe question. Money has some kind of a strange power.
