    I am your contant companion.
    I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.
    I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
    I am completely at your command.
    Half of the things you do you might just as well turn over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.

    I am easily managed-you must merely be firm with me.
    Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons I will do it automatically.
    I am the servant of all great individuals and, alas, all failures as well.
    Those who are great, I have made great.
    Those who are failures, I have made failures.

    Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.
    Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

    Who am I?

    I think LinkHyrule has been without that for quite some time.

    Haky - how did you know he didn't mean content? And didn't has an apostrophe, whoops and XanthosNZ should be capitalized and the sentence needs some sort of punctuation, because it is not entirely clear if this is a stupid question or a stupid statement.

    I agree with Gastel, but yes I did misspell constant. My only excuse is that I was typing as quickly as possible and wasn't paying attention.

    Anyway, the answer I am looking for still has not been found yet.

    That enough for you? Of course it is impossible for me to show that I actually know those rather than just copy pasting them but oh well.

    There is only one number in pi - pi itself.
