Would it get me anywhere?

A poor but learned Talmudist worked on his Bible commentary with great zeal.
“how Impractical!” remarked the rich man of the town.
“why don’t you stop writing, it’ll get you nowhere!”
And if I stop writing, would it get me anywhere?” asked the scholar

Most of the time, I think like the rich man in the story.
But I am blessed at few times, to think like the scholar and ask that question to myself.
And this question keeps me going…..
