Mensagem:  Please, take a look at the extract bellow, form the book “Gladiator: A Hero Will Rise” (ISBN 0-582-47117-6):

“...Soon Maximus is fighting for his life again, first as a prisoner, then a slave, and finally as a gladiator. One thought keeps Maximus alive: that he will finally meet and kill the man he hates most -the new Emperor, Commodus....”

Is the sentence "One thought keeps somebody alive" an expression? Is it usual?

Thanks
