There are moments when tribulations occur in
our lives, and we cannot avoid them. But they are there for some reason.
The meaning of my life was whatever I wanted
it to be.
Every man hath the right to doubt his task,
and to forsake it from time to time; but what he must not do is forget it.
Whoever doubteth not himself is unworthy - for in his unquestioning belief
in his ability, he commiteth the sin of pride. Blessed are they who go
through moments of indecision.
All life's battles teach us something, even
those we lose. When you grow up, you'll discover that you have defended
lies, deceived yourself, or suffered from foolishness. If you're a good
warrior, you will not blame yourself for this, but neither will you allow
your mistakes to repeat themselves.
I have long seen people passing through here
on their way to .... Some of them complained that they had not achieved
anything in this place and were setting out for a new destiny. One day
these people would return. They had not found what they were seeking, for
they carried with them, along with their bags, the weight of their earlier
failure. They lacked the confidence in themselves to take risks.
On the other hand, there also passed my door people full of ardor. They had
profited from every moment of life here. To these people, life was a
constant triumph and would go on being one. These people also
returned, but with wonderful tales to tell. They had achieved everything
they desired because they were not limited by the frustrations of the past.

things : to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to
know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.
Sometimes it was necessary to struggle with
God. Every human being at sometime had tragedy enter his life; it might be
the destruction of a city, the death of a near and dear one, an unproved
accusation, God challenged one to confront Him and to answer his question :
"Why dost thou cling fast to an existence so short and so filled with
sufferings ? What is the meaning of thy struggle?" The man who did
not know how to answer this question would resign himself, while another,
one who sought a meaning to existence, feeling that God had been unjust,
would challenge his own destiny. It was at this moment that fire of a
different type descended from the heavens - not the fire that kill but the
kind that tears down ancient walls and imparts to each human being his true
possibilities. Cowards never allow their heart to blaze with this fire; all
they desire is for the changed situation to quickly return to what it was
before., so they can go on living their lives and thinking in their
customary way. The brave, however, set afire that which was old and, even at
the cost of great internal suffering, abandon everything, including God, and
continue onward. The brave are always stubborn.
Take advantage of the chance that tragedy
has given you; not everyone is capable of doing so.

lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid
