“Life moves on,
whether we act as cowards or heroes.
Everything we shut our eyes to,
everything we run away from,
everything we deny, denigrate, or despise,
serves to defeat us in the end.
What seems nasty, painful, or evil
can become a source of beauty,
joy and strength,
if faced with an open mind.
Every moment is a golden one
for him who has the vision
to recognize it as such.”
~ Henry Miller
