The challenges we currently face will be conquered and then they
will be replaced by new ones. This is the cycle of change and the
fulcrum of growth that has brought us where we are today.

No Way to Spend a Life

“I think I essentially made a mistake in staying in movies but it’s a mistake I can’t regret because it’s like saying I shouldn’t have stayed married to that woman but I did because I love her. I would have been more successful if I hadn’t been married to her, you know. I would have been more successful if I’d left movies immediately, stayed in the theatre, gone into politics, written, anything. I’ve wasted a greater part of my life looking for money and trying to get along, trying to make my work from this terribly expensive paintbox which is a movie. And I’ve spent too much energy on things that have nothing to do with making a movie. It’s about two percent movie-making and ninety-eight percent hustling. It’s no way to spend a life.”

       — Orson Welles

“Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all,—
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain. ”
― Ella Wheeler Wilcox

We have a stop serving beginning at 9pm here in Greensboro. I'm not sure about NC in general.
Anyhow about 8:30 I ran (drove) up my local brewpub which has a great outdoor setup and stage to catch the end of a jazz gig by local college students. They had drums, bass fiddle, electric guitar and trumpet. Sounded great.
I had time for one beautiful hazy IPA and listened til 9, when they stopped.
Though there's no alcohol served after 9,the brewpub
doesn't close until 10 so a bit of an open jam was suggested. A couple of kids were messing around and I walked up and asked if they minded if I sat in on harp.
They were excited and I have to say that made me feel good. 
Anyhow we broke into a jazz funk fusion thing that flowed like freedom. I was in love with the moment and by the chemistry I could tell they were too.
We ripped it for 6 or 7 minutes and faded beautifully. 
all this applause erupted and I swear I didn't realize how many people were out there.

Anyhow the quote is
" Opportunity only dances with you when you're already on the dance floor"

square one.
 

sounds righteous...

I’ve known dozens of people who got tenure track academic jobs and fully, openly admit to doing barely any reading throughout the whole of their MA or PhD programs. They were able to graduate–not sneak by, but excel and become leaders in their fields–by skimming wikipedia pages and connecting what they read to some pet issue of theirs in an extremely tenuous manner. They then go out and become recognized experts on texts they haven’t even read yet and their misreadings become canonized.
 
It’s gotten so bad that actually reading the theory you’ve been assigned can harm your job prospects, because basing your analysis on what authors actually wrote–rather than the vague summaries and half-assed analyses that have entered into the wider discourse–requires you to alienate yourself intellectually.

The above quote explains how to succeed in academia of the humanities clearly and succinctly. Wouldn't you want to know all this if you were just starting out?
 
 
That is pretty much what I figured out when I went back to school in 2001 to get my BBA.  Give the instructors what they wanted.  Jump through their hoops the way they want you to.  It worked, remembering what my father told me long ago about a college degree.  It doesn't mean that you know everything the degree is supposed to represent, it means that you know how to properly finish a course study and find the answers needed to do so.
