From ‘The Bombard Story’

“The castaway must never give way to despair, and should always remember, when things seem at their worst, that ‘something will turn up’ and his situation may be changed. But neither should he let himself become too hopeful; it never does to forget that however unbearable an ordeal may seem, there may be another to come which will efface the memory of the first. The best advice that I can give is that whether things go well or ill, the castaway must try to maintain a measure of detachment.”
