In the abyss lies the treasure

I like this quote from American mythologist and writer Joseph Campbell about life’s hardships and the gifts they can give us:

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life.  Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

How true.

Wise words, courtesy of author Paulo Coelho in his excellent novel The Alchemist:

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?”  the boy asked.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you’ll find your treasure.”
