Those Keen To Advance

It is said that those who are keen to advance are quick to retreat. When they should stop, they do not. When they should be reserved, they are overly warm. They act with a fleeting enthusiasm; acting with true sincerity that withers by the end. Thus those keen to advance, those who don’t stop, those overly warm are not really up to the task. Never the less, that quickness to retreat recedes with time; the energy is transformed, without leaving even a trace of it.
