Like someone lost in the forest, if you're not really convinced there's a way out of suffering, you give up very easily. You run into a thicket here, a steep cliff there, and it just seems way too much. But if you're convinced there's got to be a way out, you've heard of other people who've made their way out, you think, "It's got to be in here someplace." You keep looking, looking, looking. Finally you see how the other people made their way out - oh, that was the path they took."
