"Life is difficult. This is a great truth,
one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth
because once we truly see this truth, we
transcend it. Once we truly know that life
is difficult - once we truly understand and
accept it - then life is no longer difficult.
Because once it is accepted, the fact that
life is difficult no longer matters."
M. Scott Peck, M.D.,
