Sample Sentences & Example Usage
On every June 21, the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, I remember this unforgettable line from Albert Camus: 'In the depth of Winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible Summer.' It's true that we often discover our true strength only during the most challenging phases of life.
