Be strong, and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid ... for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.--DEUT. xxxi. 6.

  The timid it concerns to ask their way,
  And fear what foe in caves and swamps can stray,
  To make no step until the event is known,
  And ills to come as evils past bemoan.
  Not so the wise; no coward watch he keeps
  To spy what danger on his pathway creeps;
  Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
  His hearth the earth,--his hall the azure dome;
  Where his clear spirit leads him, there's his road,
  By God's own light illumined and foreshowed.
R. W. EMERSON.

Though I sympathize, I do not share in the least the feeling of being disheartened and cast down. It is not things of this sort that depress me, or ever will. The contrary things, praise, openings, the feeling of the greatness of my work, and my inability in relation to it, these things oppress and cast me down; but little hindrances, and closing up of accustomed or expected avenues, and the presence of difficulties to be overcome,--I'm not going to be cast down by trifles such as these.
JAMES HINTON.
