Today’s post will be one of succinctness and brevity: a mere quote from Richard Adams’s immensely popular book, Watership Down.
I mean, by deliverance of this quote, to summon up a feeling of hope and courage in each of our breasts: a reminder that, though the end of the journey may not even be near, it will NEVER get any nearer, if we do not attempt to strive towards it.
NOTE: This may, perhaps, be an even stronger reminder for myself, than it is for you. But I hope you may derive some small benefit from it!
And so, in the words of Mr. Richard Adams . . .
To come to the end of a time of anxiety and fear! To feel the cloud that hung over us lift and disperse — the cloud that dulled the heart and made happiness no more than a memory! . . . Hopelessness and reluctance are blown away like a fog and the dumb solitude where they crept, a place desolate as a crack in the ground, opens like a rose and stretches to the hills and the sky.
