Don't Worry


(Reblogged from Brain Pickings)

On 24th November 1942, Clare Boothe Luce wrote a letter to her 18-year-old daughter Ann, at the time a second-year student at Stanford University, which included the following paragraph:

Don’t worry about your studies. When you want to do them well you will do them superbly, but for the moment the main thing is to get what little happiness there is out of life in this wartorn world because “these are the good old days” now.

Unfortunately, a little more than a year later, Ann, Luce’s only child, was killed in a car accident.
