trying to find a motive

I really am wondering why I'm doing this. I've thought and thought and have decided that I agree with whomever it was that said we don't do anything with pure motives. So, my motives are mixed.

Here's where I would like to start.
I found this quote about Johnny Cash and I love it. Yeah, this is a good place to start.

Honesty surpasses dignity. He was able to show his weaknesses and frailties and not lose his dignity. He was honest, and I believe that honesty has to surpass concern for your personal dignity. You have to expose yourself to be appreciated and respected. My father in lots of ways was like Job in the Bible. He prayed many times for his physical or spiritual pain to be removed. But he never cursed God because of those pains. He owned them.

Lessons from my Father, Johnny Carter Cash

And here's my son Simon's quote from the movie Racing Stripes:

Like my momma used to say, "You ca
n put your boots in the oven, but that don't make 'em biscuits."
