Myth

For the present is the only thing a man can lose, if it is true that it is the only thing he has, and that a man cannot lose a thing which he has not.

Life Is A Challenge


Life is a challenge. If you think life is smooth and it's perfect, you are wrong or you are delusional.
(Anastasia Soare in Hero by Rhonda Byrne, p. 157)
