The shin­ing dreams and ideals of youth of­ten be­come tar­nished and faded in midlife. We ex­pected great things from life but are dis­ap­pointed to see our dreams un­ful­filled and time run­ning out. Thoreau fa­mously re­marked that “Most men lead lives of quiet des­per­a­tion and go to the grave with the song still in them.” Liv­ing with this des­per­a­tion takes a heavy toll which few can bear. Most of us ei­ther re­lin­quish the dreams or lower our ex­pec­ta­tions. Some of us con­tinue to be­lieve that the brass ring might still be grasped. But no one can live with the thought that they have some­how failed at life, or failed to live up to their own ideals. So how should we face this? How do we live in such a way that we can ap­proach the grave with a fullthroat­ed singing of our dreams and ideals? One way is to keep do­ing the best that we can, know­ing we are fi­nite crea­tures who of­ten stum­ble. But, at least if we know that we have run the race with de­ter­mi­na­tion, never giv­ing up, we will know we have done our best. We should also re­al­ize that this isn’t an in­di­vid­ual race, but a re­lay race, where we have taken the ba­ton from oth­ers and will soon pass it on. And fi­nally, to com­plete the anal­ogy, the coach of our team is God, and ul­ti­mately God’s team will win. We are all cos­mic win­ners if we are on the side of good­ness.
