I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
All the interests of my reason, speculative as well as practical, combine in the three following questions: What can I know? What ought I to do? What may I hope? This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays. The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.

You gradually struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people. In the end, it is the reality of personal relationship that saves everything.

Living on Hope Street
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope. Patience and fortitude conquer all things. Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them.
If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal. The next road is always ahead. Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
