Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal; it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it.
Throughout your life, you’ll be faced with many disappointments. Perhaps you’re dealing with a disappointment right now.

Disappointment is not an easy thing to face, but standing strong in the face of disappointment and picking yourself up afterwards is crucial to living a good life.
