Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you

Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you. 

By - Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman was an American poet, essayist, and journalist who wrote this quote click here to know more about him.

Synopses: In this quote sunshine represent power, good, hope, positive and shadow represent fear, negative, doubts. What he is trying to convey is that if you keep your face towards sunshine (be optimist or look at the bright side) then the shadows will fall behind you (you will ignore fear, negative and ill thoughts)

So in simple terms if try to become optimist or try look at the bright side of things you will naturally ignore fear, negative and ill thoughts.

E.g: If you are about to do sky diving, many thoughts will cross your mind which will prevent you to do it, but if you try to look at its bright side you will easily ignore all the fear and doubts.

I hope you understand this quote and are ready to apply in your life.

      Just to mention it. Following are the meaning of those words:
      Doughts: This is not a valid word but a spelling mistake I made.
      Doubts (This is what I meant): Feel uncertain about something or someone/yourself.
      Droughts: A drought is an event of prolonged shortages in the water supply, whether atmospheric, surface water or ground water.
      Doughs: Dough is a thick, malleable, sometimes elastic paste made out of any grains, leguminous or chestnut crops.
