No sooner had my master heard of this than he returned post haste to the city brazenly, bringing back with him such students as he could, and reinstating his brotherhood in their former monastery, much as if he would free his soldiery, whom he had deserted, from my blockade.

On more tolerable days, if possible, offer helping hands or ears to others. It doesn’t matter if it’s in person, by mail, over the internet, or by phone. Small actions can make a positive difference in someone else’s day or even life, just like they can for you. Find a real way to have your voice heard.
