“I’ve always said there’s no hope without endeavour. Hope has no meaning unless we are prepared to work to realise our hopes and dreams but in order to that we do need to have friends. We need those who believe in us. Friends are those who believe in us and who want to help us whatever it is that we are trying to achieve.” Aung San Suu Kyi
