"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny." Move past your hardships and prepare for the good things that come afterwards. Don't let your hardships jade you or blind you to the greatness that life is offering.
Quote about Prayer by C.S. Lewis: "I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It does not change God, it changes me.
