Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
Do not pursue what is illusory - property and position all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade and can be confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life - don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness it is after all, all the same the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing.
Don't think you are paying me some kind of tribute if you let my death become the great event of your life. The best tribute you can pay me as a mother is to go on and have a good and fulfilling life. Enjoy what you have.
Don't worry about the unexpected changes in your life. It may catch you off-guard but when you move on with the flow, you will realize that's the main thing which made you stronger every time it hit you !!
