Endure and Learn. . .
We often seek a life of no hardships, no strain and no distress. What we often find is the polar opposite of these qualities. It is within our steps through this journey and attitude towards what each steps brings that the wise find their insights.
Eiji Yoshikawa (1892-1962), the renowned Japanese author of many epic historic novels, asserted, “Great character is forged through hardships.” Surviving a life of hardships and difficulties, of stormy ups and downs, is what produces a person of great depth and character.
True happiness is found in such an unshakable states of life, perception and endurance. So rise to your wisdom and embrace the moments for not only what they bring, but what we can learn form them.
