Life is never the same: it ebbs and flows, ever changing, moving us and everything else about. Today, we may feel justly proud because we have managed to solve a problem, but tomorrow another development may arise which cannot be tackled with the same methods and approach – we are obliged to adapt to this new situation.

Know that life will always present us with different problems to resolve, and we need to find a specific solution for each one. For example, yesterday a good deed or a generous gesture may have been the answer, but today another difficulty presents itself, perhaps requiring the solution of reason, or action, or patience – or even by turning a deaf ear.

So, always try to find how best to adapt to every problem.
