Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success:
you have to let it happen by not caring about it.
I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you
to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge.
Then you will live to see that in the long run—
in the long run, I say!—success
will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.
