"The distance is so great between how we live and how we ought to
live, that he who abandons what is done for what ought to be done,
learns his ruin rather than his preservation; because a man who
wants to make a profession of goodness in everything is bound to
come to ruin among so many who are not good."
The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

To be honest, I've yet to understand fully what this statement really means. But what I've understood is that, we can only be that much contented by our life, the way we live life etc. We always imagine, "What if I were..?" or "What would have happened if..?" One always reflect themselves to be much more than where they are at the moment, putting them down in our 'To-do list'. However so, abandoning our present for "the better life" has to be done periodically. We would not want to be at the horrible side of life if plans take a wrong turn. To do this, we need to learn how to not be good, how to be bad at things, how to get people to shout, "You suck!", so that we can educate and prevent ourselves from making that mistake.

Preserve who we truly are, use the knowledge we have but not as necessity dictates.

"The first thing to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want"
