No, it isn't. Your statement is nonsensical.

Alan, you gotta rain on someone's parade?

Depends on your definition. I'm not going to accept illogical positions. And I'm not going to be nice for the sake of making people feel good when they say things that just don't make sense.
Staying true to reason, even if it makes you unpopular with the unreasonable--that is what I call Class.

Anyway...
Let's get back on topic!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hmm...
Not sure if I understand that. But you are joking, right?

Well then because you are special, I give permission to go beyond 50 words.
Anyone? 300 words to explain the reasoning behind "goal is the path". The only rule is that you have to use logic. Plain, cold, hard logic.
Good luck.

I could tell you in 301, but that would be too many.

Could you let us know, in 4 words, why we should indulge your preference for short posts?

I think we are off-topic again. It might a new thread for you.

The path is the goal if you want to wander forever.
