“Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.”

—Robert Louis Stevenson

I read this quote this morning and though I realize it smacks of cheesy inspirational crap, it made me release the breath I didn’t realize I’d been holding and smile. Because I can do that.
