Eventually, someone has to be at the top. And who will that person turn to? Let
us invoke not deities but pragmatism. It is experience that is the ultimate
teacher. That is why wise people travel constantly and test themselves against
the flux of circumstance. It is only in this way that they can truly confirm
their thoughts and compensate for their shortcomings.
