Meet Cate Bishop

Cate Bishop
The great secret is to go through life as a human being who never gets disenchanted.
The great wisdom is to overcome any disappointment.  

And if man takes another step and fills reverence for life with love and the will to protect other living creatures, then he becomes an ethical human being who, through his action, elevates life onto a higher plane of existence.
