Man lives only to learn. And if he learns it is because it is the nature of his lot, for good or bad.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
We hardly ever realize that we can cut anything out of our lives, anytime, in the blink of an eye.
You say you need help. Help for what? You have everything needed for the extravagant journey that is your life.
We are men and our lot in life is to learn and to be hurled into inconceivable new worlds.
A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war: wide-awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake, and whoever makes it might never live to regret it.

Only as a warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.
