If you’re lost or hungry or in danger, ponte pared, make like a wall. That is, you present a solid unbreachable surface, you show nothing, neither fear nor dispair, and you protect the inner fortress of yourself from all corners.
The Tortilla Curtain, T.C. Boyle
Run it out. In despair, in your darkest moment, find your breath and envision your goal. And run it out.
