If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind.
-Norman Vincent Peale
It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Give me the comma of imperfect striving, thus to find zest in the immediate living. Ever the reaching but never the gaining, ever the climbing but never the attaining of the mountain top.
Because zest is important to me! You get three!
(Original Saint-Exupery quote which inspired it all came through LeVan D. Hawkins...)
