Thought for the day 13th of April 2011
“I am a little deaf, a little blind, a little impotent and on top of this are two or three abominable infirmities, but nothing destroys my hope” by Voltaire.
Voltaire describes a person who is in trouble with outside circumstances, physical disabilities and has all possible reasons to be disappointed, frustrated, angry and unhappy about his life and his destiny. But is he? No, he still has hope. As you can see circumstances can have a pretty much power out of themselves, but in your situation they will have as much power as you give to them, not more.
Only you can give up your hope and nobody, or nothing else can take it away from you. You decide whether to give it up or keep to it. Outside circumstances put a pressure on you in order to take away good things from you, but if you don’t give in but resist the attacks and hold on to your purposes and targets, not only these attacks will not be able to take away from you anything, you will also become stronger when you win. So, look at the outside circumstances as possibilities to grow, become stronger, and develop as a mature personality. Never lose hope!
