nothing revolutionary
but defendable
on serveral levels

There is no state called “happiness”
no blessed realm of bliss
this side of the great sea.
In this land, in this life there is but
the quest undertaken,
the battle joined,
the challenge accepted.
Here matters not the laurel
but the seeking
not the life but the living.
Take up the quest,
accept the challenge
do not settle down
nor settle for less
until you meet the great sea...
