It is clear that we must embrace struggle. Every living thing conforms to it.
Everything in nature grows and struggles in its own way, establishing its own identity, insisting on it at all cost, against all resistance. We can be sure of very little, but the need to court struggle is a surety that will not leave us.
It is good to be lonely, for being alone is not easy.
The fact that something is difficult must be one more reason to do it.
Rainer Maria Rilke.
