We do not succeed in changing things

according to our desire, but gradually

our desire changes. The situation that

we hoped to change because it was

.intolerable becomes unimportant

We have not managed to surmount

the obstacle, as were absolutely

determined to do, but life

has taken us around it, led

us past it, and then if we turn

around to gaze at the remote

past, we can barely catch sight

.of it, so imperceptible has it become
