    To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action till the goal is reached. The key is action.

    I predict you will sink step by step into a bottomless quagmire, however much you spend in men and money.

    There was a blithe certainty that came from first comprehending the full Einstein field equations, arabesques of Greek letters clinging tenuously to the page, a gossamer web. They seemed insubstantial when you first saw them, a string of squiggles. Yet to follow the delicate tensors as they contracted, as the superscripts paired with subscripts, collapsing mathematically into concrete classical entities-- potential; mass; forces vectoring in a curved geometry-- that was a sublime experience. The iron fist of the real, inside the velvet glove of airy mathematics.

    Applied to any other creature than the Leviathan- to an ant or a flea- such portly terms might justly be deemed unwarrantably grandiloquent.

    I'd make the argument that nothing is more important than Foudue.
    Fine. Batmanuel will eat your Fondue and his Foudue. No Fondue for you. You get no Fondue! You Fondue? No can do. You Fondue? I do too…I Fondue you…
