Alexander Dumas: “Life is a Storm, My Young Friend”

Photographer unknown, (Pale Blue Eyes)

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you” 

—Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
