“Courage is not about strength, or even faith and hope. It’s about taking a chance, and another one, and another one” 
– Ben 

Excerpt of “A Story About Between Illness and Migration”, page 108, in which Ben talks about the song “Anyone”. Here is a little more;

“It’s like having someone answer back to the initial “hello, is there anyone”, loud or whispered, reminding you that no matter how hard and difficult of a struggle it is to call for someone, anyone, the echo ain’t always from your own desperation. Sometimes, it’s somebody’s call we hear, reminding us that we maybe aren’t alone, that somehow other people could have been there all along. Courage is not about strength or even about faith and hope; it’s about taking a chance, and another one, and away from the noises and sounds.”
