Listen - people watch you,

“Listen – people watch you, they always count on there being someone to show them how to live. If you are happy, everyone can be happy, and if you know how to suffer, the others will know too. Every day you must get up and say to your heart: ‘I’ve suffered enough, and now I have to live, for the light of the sun must not be frittered away and lost without any to enjoy it.’ And if you don’t do that, you won’t have the right to say ‘It’s not my fault’ when someone seeks out a cliff and throws himself in the sea.” - The Bridge of Beyond, Simone Schwarz-Bart
