if you’re going to try.

“If you’re going to try, go all the way.
Otherwise, don’t even start.

This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days.
It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation.

Isolation is the gift.
All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.
And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

If you’re going to try, go all the way.
There is no other feeling like that.
You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire.
You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.

It’s the only good fight there is.”

— Charles Bukowski

    1. You try when your mind fights your soul. You try when your reason says no but your heart is sad by agreeing. You try when you had still not decide the way to go. When you fight yourself in the battle field of your life. You try when you did not decide but is going into sometimes. You try when you you are not up to do but not out at all. You try when you instantly decides do quite and quite. You try more than you do all the way through life.
