"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Everyone suffers some injustice in life, and what better motivation than to help others not suffer in the same way.

    Focus on the present moment-
    Don't try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand and ask "Why is this so unbearable? Why can't I endure it?" You'll be embarrassed to answer. Then remind yourself that the past and future have no power over you; only the present does.

    You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either.- Mere Christianity, Book Two, Chapter 4 - C. S. Lewis

    Gunnery Sergeant Hartman ("Full Metal Jacket", 1987)

    Hartman: I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?

    Recruits: [In unison in a normal speaking tone] Sir, yes Sir.

    Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Bullshit I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!

    Recruits: [In unison, much louder] SIR, YES SIR!

    Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human f..ing beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?
