If we put the emphasis upon the right things, if we live the life that is worthwhile and then fail, we will survive all disasters; we will outlive all misfortune. We should be so well balanced and symmetrical, that nothing which could ever happen could throw us off our center, so that no matter what misfortune should overtake us, there would still be a whole magnificent man or woman left after being stripped of everything else.
