People who have overcome obstacles are more secure than those who have never faced them. We all have problems and we feel discouraged some time. Most people get disappointed; but winners don’t get disheartened. The answer is perseverance. An English proverb says, “A smooth sea never made a skilful mariner.” Everything is difficult before it becomes easy. We cannot run away from our problems. Only losers quit and give up.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
—Abigail Van Buren
