Chapter 1: Letters


On the road to God the only sustenance is infinite hope

- hope shining like the north star in darkness, hope keeping you company like a shadow in loneliness.

Dark and lonely life’s path certainly is - but only for those without hope.

The famous geographical explorer Donald Macmillan was preparing for his journey to the north pole

when he received a letter.

On it was written:

To be opened only when there is no hope of survival.

Fifty years passed; the envelope remained with Macmillan as it was - sealed.

Someone asked him the reason for this and he replied:

For one thing I want to keep faith with the unknown sender, and for another, I have never given up hope.

What priceless words! - I have never given up hope!
