21. one man may opt out of school to form a band
and we have john lennon

another man may opt to continue in school and be a sheep and get a piece of paper and work 60 hours a week and his job is at enron and he ends up with no retirement

there are no rules

no one can guarantee through hard work or through sacrifice of a dream that he will not be poor

life is chance

working hard promises you nothing except the right to feel superior if it works out for you and the right to feel cheated of your dream if it doesn't

food, shelter, health care should be there for all
