WILL 


"If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew 

To serve your turn long after they are gone, 

And so hold on when there is nothing in you 

Except the will which says to them: hold on..."

—Rudyard Kipling

 

"Your will turns thought into reality. 

You must learn to focus your will and 

create what you see in your mind. 

The limits are only what you can imagine."

—Tomar-Re

 

"The man who is to be great is the one who can be 

the most solitary, the most hidden, the most deviant, 

the man beyond good and evil, lord of his virtues, 

a man lavishly endowed with will."

—Friedrich Nietzsche

R5-D4 



I keep thinking about R5-D4. 

 

He was all set for the big adventure, when out of the blue: poof. Bad motivator. Left behind. 

 

A tragedy, but I bet it didn't even bother him that much at the time. After all, astromech droids are optimists by nature, and each of us is the hero of our own story. R5-D4 probably thought "Just a setback. No worries. This is only the beginning. Another opportunity will come along soon." 

 

How could he have known that those fleeting few moments, during which he was the chosen one, were actually the peak of his role in the big adventure? 

 

I bet he's still out there in the desert, wondering what the hell happened.

 

He probably thinks his best days are still ahead. Maybe he's right.

For all we know, he could be in great condition now.

Motivator repaired, fully operational. Ready to serve.

 

May the force be with him.

Engage your mind and heart, get up, and go."
