“Our world is a place where even a spider refuses to lie down and die if a rope can still be spun to a star.” (Loren Eiseley)
Life is hard, and it sometimes sounds like a good idea to stop, to give up, to lie down and die. But there are those who refuse to stop spinning, even when it seems more sophisticated to give in to cynicism and pessimism.
The rope you spin, even if it is thin, can still be spun with optimism, curiosity, wonder, and the sincere desire to share your trip to the stars with others. Such a goal would be worth the struggle — especially since the star to which we aspire is full adulthood.
It is in this ongoing striving for adulthood that our true hope lies, so keep spinning.
