I’m starting Benjamin Franklin’s virtue ethics project this year. I’ll post about that later or something. Right now I’m just getting this out here because I need to wake up nowish. I’ll update this later.
One of the virtues I want is Grit.
Grant me the Grit to carry through
what I know to do,
Until it’s through.
Grant me the Grit to not give up,
when things get tough,
and instead to learn.
Grant me the Grit to punch through the wall,
every fucking day,
until it’s gone.
