Limitations

To be pleased with one's limits is a wretched state.
  - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I love this quote.  I think life is about growing, reaching, pushing, learning.  I hope I never feel that I had "arrived" and there is no more to accomplish.

I like that quote Brian. Reminds me of something I learned a long time ago about the two sides of contentment.

I am often get it backwards: I not content with what I have but I am very content with who I am.

Happy Friday, Bob

For me, there's a fine line between being content and being satisfied. To me, satisfied means I am not striving for more. But, being content means I am happy with what I already have, what I already am. The key is to both be content with what we've achieved and willing to keep forward to achieve more tomorrow.
