We Are Here To Celebrate The Refusal To Despair


Anais says "I love your insight: refusal to despair."
Later she would take this phrase as the theme for her lectures. I remember her quiet entrance onto the stage - Lifting her hands, arms extended, palms up, she seemed to lift the entire audience to their feet as she said, in the quietest of voice -
"WE ARE HERE TO CELEBRATE THE REFUSAL TO DESPAIR"

  1. "There may not be hope, but there doesn't have to be despair." I read that somewhere.
