Thanks for thanking me.

" I am set in my purpose "shows up 2 x on google and now that I have written it probably 3 times:) I think it is perfect English and I personally like it.

I would be a marvellous sentence for a politician to say:

I am set in my purpose to free the world of hunger, disease, atomic bombs and herpes.

 

It is not something you'll hear on every corner of the street though.

 

Just this bit as well:

is the one that more approachES of that meaning

 

Have a nice weekend,

Johannes
