Difficulties act as whetstones to sharpen your character
Disappointment is a pestle that crushes your ego against the mortar of your soul
Delays are interlude in meeting yourself once more
Failure reroutes your focus
Distance reveals the horizon
Spiritual wealth is what will keep you warm in your grave, and beloved in your absence. Keep digging and don’t mind all the dirt and loneliness. Life grows in the womb of darkness.
