We are our own warriors, our own heroes. We must make our own luck. Through self-sacrifice, we strive to the bitter end for gratification. We accomplished so much solely through our own might and will. Our reward is renewed inner strength.
“People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.You have to participate relentlessly.”
