Quote by EDDIE JAKU - Deepstash

Imagine starving so badly you could not eat. But the little extra kindness gave me new strength, the strength to not give up. The kindness he showed me wasn't enough to rebuild my health because I was very weak, but it showed me that not everybody hated us.

This was something perhaps even more valuable. It made me say, 'Eddie, don't give up.' Because if I give up, I am finished.

If you give up, if you say it's not worth living anymore, you will not last long. Where there is life, there is hope. And where there is hope, there is life.
