gives life a richness and unpredictability that endows even the simplest undertakings

with an air of challenge and uncertainty"

By comparing yourself with a worse player you will feel better. Only by measuring yourself with the best, you can become better.
Similar to playing different chess opponents. You can play against worse players and feel great about your game but never improve. To improve your game, you must play against players that are superior.
Any way you look at it . .good advice !

Reminds me of a sampler I saw once.

"A clean house is a sign of a wasted life."

I'm not sure I completely agree with it, but I take comfort from it.

"Some people are so smart that they outsmart themselves" - my dad.

producing without possessing,
creating without regard to result,
claiming nothing,

and with my own hands, wrought to make them grow.
But this is all the harvest that I reaped,
I came like water, and like wind I go"
