What matters is though life uncertain be
To all? What ghough its goal
Be never reached? What though it fall and flee
Have we not each a soul?
Be like the bird that on the bough too frail
To bear him gayly swings
Be carols though the slender branches fail-
He knows that he has wings.
This is the way to cultivate courage: first, standing firm on some conscientious princilple, some love of duty; next, by being faithful to truth and right on small occasions, and common events; and third, by trusting In God for help and power.
Rev J C Walker
Character must stand behind and back up everything. The sermon, the poem, the picture, the play- none of them is worth a straw without it.
