“It is worth it to try and to keep on trying and to never give up, because that is what life itself does. It is relentless. Nothing daunts it. If it is cut down, burned down, blown down, it will begin in that same moment, by whatever means it can, through whatever medium remains, to grow again.”–from The Haiku Interviews.
