Everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
All things need watching, working at, caring for and marriage is no exception. Marriage is not something to be treated indifferently, or abused or something that simply takes care of itself. Nothing neglected will remain as it was or is, or will fail to deteriorate. All things need attention care and concern and especially so in this most sensitive of all relationships of life.
