A mai három angol szót, három idézetből vettem:

strive – küzd, törekszik, igyekszik

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

in spite of – valaminek ellenére, – dacára

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

obligation – kötelezettség, kötelesség

“Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect.”
Margaret Mitchell
