railing against fate is unattractive:
it imposes a nuisance and a burden
upon our friends and family,
some of whom might have more reason to
complain than we do.
on the other hand,
to make light of a big problem,
or to seem to,
tends to be admired..
destiny is deaf to our protestations.
so why not make the best of things-
with silent patience and fortitude?
