What's Worse?

"Let me ask you one question.
What's worse? Not getting everything you wished for?
... or getting it but finding out its not enough?
The rest of your life is being shaped right now,
With the dreams you chase, the choices you make...
and the person you decide to be...
The rest of your life is a long time....
And the rest of your life starts right now."

One Tree Hill, Episode 5.02

^That's definitely worse. Your last hope of 'something better' is blown away...such a Sisyphean situation!

This was a great quote.

I would rather want, get and find out it wasn't worth it...at least then I can move on to wanting something else and keep going in the recursive cycle till someday I learn what is actually worth wanting.
