Through the darkest days of the year

“You can stand to see the Imperial flag reign across the galaxy?”
“It’s not a problem if you don’t look up.”
Rogue One

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (movie veersion)

“To be an artist means never to avert one’s eyes.”
— Akira Kurosawa

“No darkness lasts forever. And even there, there are stars.
— Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

Always look up. Work towards happiness, but not only happiness, and not only for ourselves. Keep your eyes open as much as you can, and then keep them open a little more than that.

Act.
