What matters in our work – whether you act on the stage or write stories – what really matters is not fame, or glamour, not the things I used to dream about – but knowing how to endure things. How to bear one’s cross and have faith. I have faith now, and I’m not suffering quite so much, and when I think of my vocation, I’m not afraid of life.

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)
