Certain tasks have been accomplished. And I say this
with the confidence of one who knows well enough that no task is ever
actually accomplished, it merely remains there in a condition of
uneasiness. Like a Hippo walking a tightrope.
The idea of "finished" is
obviously absurd, unless a mind is either capable of conceptualizing "not
being here," or it is "wonderfully arrogant." But I have noticed that
sometimes a satisfaction can be gained from translating
"Yes! He is accomplished," into "Yes! He is finished."
