The economic miracle that has been the United States
  was not produced by socialized enterprises, by
  government-union-industry cartels or by centralized
  economic planning. It was produced by private
  enterprises in a profit-and-loss system. And losses
  were at least as important in weeding out failures
  as profits in fostering successes. Let government
  succor failures, and we shall be headed for
  stagnation and decline.
                          -Milton Friedman

          May those that love us, love us;
             and those that don't love us, May God turn their hearts;

                and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may He turn their
                   ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

             It's hard to say exactly what

             you'd call it nagging.

Those only are happy who have their minds fixed
   on some object other than their own happiness:
   on the happiness of others;
   on the improvement of mankind;
   even on some art or pursuit, followed not as a means,
   but as itself an ideal end. Aiming thus at something else,
   they find happiness by the way."

This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle:
    we are given one life, and the decision is ours
    whether to wait for circumstances to make up
    our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.
