Humans can be compared to fruit trees: their circumstances are like the ground on which they must grow, blossom and bear fruit. How many people, after suffering great hardship and believing they would not survive, have had to admit that such events made them, let’s say, more ‘productive’.

This is because they were forced not only to seek resources within themselves, but also to learn how to use them.

Rather than complaining about difficult conditions, wanting to change them or expecting better ones at any cost, start by working on yourselves: dig deep into yourselves to find the elements, powers and virtues that will make you bear the most succulent fruit.
