Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it,
than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes
to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or
despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful,
evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with
an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision
to recognize it as such.
-- Henry Miller
