overweening personal ambition is no virtue;
but while i had it,
i could have danced on a bed of nails.
when the ship is ready i will sail to the yonder whether at day or upon the setting of good moonlight.
i will be missed, but as it is the rule of life that a day is foretold for our passing to the next, when my day comes, let me sail to that beyond and leave this world to you, the next bethrothed to lead the world.
