The Lonely Road
The dignity of work and the bridging of class, these were the themes of the 1930's, when author Nevil Shute wrote the novel, The Lonely Road.
The truest test for a human is to find him or herself on the lonely road of life and to make one's way forward, despite the sadness of regrets or loss, regardless of hope unrealized.
The most joyful of times is in the unexpected pleasures...of finding oneself in the midst of nature, with or without others nearby, nature bearing heavy of earth and sea, the surrounding of living things one knows really so little about.
To work hard is to realize dreams. To understand another, step down lightly in his shoes.
