Having Hope

"A genius! For thirty-seven years I've practised fourteen hours a day, and now they call me a genius!" Pablo Sarasate, 1844-1908 a Spanish violinist and composer.

This prompts me to raise two points:
  1. that accepting the mundane and tiresome, taking the narrow road rather than the wide easy road is the way to achievement
  2. during the times of oppression, disillusion and hardship which may in fact last for years we should never give up hope. This story about a Bangladeshi man who was separated from his family supports this.
Do you agree?
