“Rest if you must, but never quit”

I already posted a similar entry on my other blog, but I wanted to expound a little bit more here.

I happened to see those lines above on the top of my co-medicine resident’s “to do” list for the day. I guess it’s his way of gently reminding himself what we promised to do at the satrt of our residency training: we’ll stick together and get through this somehow, no matter the odds or the circumstances. And as of today, we have finished one month of training. That just leaves about two years and eleven months to go.

Seriously though, it was a relief to know that he too is persevering for his dreams. Not only once did he tell me the urge to quit has been beckoning. Fortunately, he has yet to give in. The climb to the top of our dreams and the journey that must be made is long and difficult, but having someone along to help carry the load definitely lightens the burden and makes the trip worthwhile.
