Do You Know What You Want To Be?

Oscar Wilde Quote

If you want to be a grocer, or a general, or a politician, or a judge, you will invariably become it;
that is your punishment.

If you never know what you want to be, if you live what some might call the dynamic life but what I call the artistic life, if each day you are unsure of who you are and what you know, you will never become anything, and that is your reward.

~ Oscar Wilde

I first discovered this quote via the wonderful Stephen Fry.

It makes me so happy.

Those of us who don’t have clear, bell-like vocation calls, have other joys.

Do you know what you want to be?

Or are you still living the dynamic life?
