Any idiot can face a crisis - it's this day-to-day living that wears you out.

It can, but I refuse to let it get me down.

It doesn't have to if you focus on the results of your activities and set your sights on something good and attainable.

That sounds like a really bad translation from the Russian to me - very colloquial.

And I agree with Lilo. Everyday living never wore me out.

Sheila, I used to love Russian Literature, and they seem to be happy when they can agonize, it comes with the territory, I think

I keep my day-to-day living as simple as possible, so when a crisis hits, I have some reserves and resources available to handle the crisis.
This may not be true for the Russian people. Their day-to-day lives have been very difficult for a long time. I can see why the comment: "Any idiot can face a crisis" was made. When a nation's money is spent to face crisis, that's the outcome. If a nation's money is spent to make day-to-day living easier for the people, that will be the outcome.
