Being disappointed is one thing and being discouraged is something else. I am disappointed but I am not discouraged.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
Nobody likes being alone that much. I don’t go out of my way to make friends, that’s all. It just leads to disappointment.
Noble characters and pure affections and happy scenes are very comforting things. They’re a refuge from life’s disillusionments.[Il est si doux, parmi les désenchantements de la vie, de pouvoir se reporter en idée sur de nobles caractères, des affections pures et des tableaux de bonheur.]
