A setback means the path you took didn't work. It DOES NOT mean all roads are closed toward your dreams, nor does it invalidate your effort. A beautiful existence blossoms from persistence. — Dodinsky A page from the book GENTLE REMINDERS.
"The ego says, 'I shouldn't have to suffer,' and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.
When you look deeply into your anger, you will see that the person you call your enemy is also suffering. As soon as you see that, the capacity for accepting and having compassion for them is there. - Thich Nhat Hanh this
