"Do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything."
~St Francis de Sales~
It's so easy to measure success by material achievement. But perhaps, success can also be measured by our ability to stay calm when material achievement eludes us. Perhaps, in fact, our ability to keep cool when everything that's happening around us would completely justify our becoming disturbed and distraught, is the greatest achievement of all.
I keep my wits about me no matter what, and carry on with great faith in spite of disappointment.
