I have desired to fly to Heaven, not understanding that it is better instead to climb.

I have desired at times to throw it all away, but afraid I was that there was nothing else.

I have desired wealth and fame, like many, then thought, “why?” and found no good answer.

I have desired things I have regretted, but rarely does anyone ever get these kinds of things.

I have desired to be noble and self-sacrificing, but mostly, it was just another form of vanity.

I have desired to achieve greatness, then I was afraid that I would succeed in doing so.

I have desired truth, but then, I imagine there are some truths I would regret knowing.
