When nobody supports you,
when everybody says no to you,
when people turn down your requests,
and you cannot get any grant
when they band together to oppose you,
and say your ideas are not practical
and they frown when they see you:
these are signs that you are moving in the right direction;
keep placing one foot ahead of the other
continue to push ahead
you are going in the difficult direction
you are visualizing things never seen before
you are setting goals others cannot understand
you will achieve results beyond their wildest dreams
but only if you keep your dream alive with hope
and you refuse to be discouraged
even when you are tired and feel alone.
What you seek is available and in abundance
keep your eyes open and you will see it
where others say they see nothing
you will discover it in large quantity and great quality.
