A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier - Ishmael Beah

This quote was added by duncedd
When I was young, my father used to say, "If you are alive, there is hope for a better day and something good to happen. If there is nothing good left in the destiny of a person, he or she will die." I thought about these words during my journey, and they kept me moving even when I didn't know where I was going. Those words became the vehicle that drove my spirit forward and made it stay alive.
