andre dubus on despair & endurance

 

”It is not hard to live through a day, if you can live through a moment. What creates despair is the imagination, which pretends there is a future, and insists upon predicting millions of moments, thousands of days, and so drains you that you cannot live the moment at hand. ”

— Luke Ripley, in Andre Dubus’ ”A Father’s Story”
