I have never found lesser or greater people to ignore or cultivate, as the case may be, because each individual human is a being of great importance.
In times of extreme distress, I’ve discovered that time, hope, and humor were the finest antidotes for anxiety. This geode still serves me faithfully. Another source of great comfort to me has been the ancient Hindu, I think, tale about the ruler who searched throughout his kingdom for some panacea to dispel a period of great tribulation, perhaps similar to this era. After all the others had failed to suggest a cure, a wise, old holy man came forward to say, simply, “and this, too, shall pass away.”
