If one thing is certain, is that nothing in this world can be done without the will to do so, and you can not expect the will to do so to just miraculously appear. You must summon it yourself, and that basic spark is courage.
Nothing will be done without will, power, and courage. Be brave, be strong, and you can act upon this world and act in freedom. This is easy to do, but somewhat difficult in actual practice. But we must all do our best to summon that small spark of strength each day if we want to act, we especially need it if we are to embark on some of the great undertakings in life, such as love. And if we don’t, at least we tried.
