Quote by Imants Ziedonis
Un atkal kr?t zvaigzne un ce?as cer?ba. K? bizonis ce?as cer?ba, k? baldri?ns.
This Latvian quote translates to "Again a star is born and hope rises. How a bison rises, how a valerian rises." The quote metaphorically represents the resilience and strength of hope in the face of adversity. It compares hope to the rising of a star and the way a bison and valerian (a medicinal plant) rise, highlighting the determination and endurance involved in the act of hoping. Despite challenges, hope continues to emerge and lift spirits, mirroring the tenacity of inner strength and the power of staying optimistic.
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
I am rejoiced at my fate. I had rather be in my present situation than to be elected to a seat in congress for life. I am in great hopes of making a fortune for myself and family. I hope you will do the best you can and I will do the same. Do not be uneasy about me for I am with my friends.
