Every great public event is birthed in the labours of the invisible process. It is the unseen conviction unto the worthiness of a cause that supplies the energy to keep on. The character to fight another day even in the darkest of trenches comes from envisioning the light at the end of the tunnel.
For any seed to germinate, it must be buried in the dark soil first where there appears to be no hope. Even the brightest flower emerge from the dark enclosure. It is against the wind that a kite rises.
“When everything appears to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” (Henry Ford)
