before you write yourself off, think about this:
people truly care about only those things that matter to them,
so, if you don’t take care of your business nobody will,
and when you write yourself off, your space is taken
by someone who might not be as good as you are,
but who is willing to hold on till the very end,
when the last chapter is read out
and the book is closed and put away on an irretrievable shelf.
