"There is in most of us a fiber of self-will, of hardness, of stubbornness which we desire to be broken. If the light is clouded, and the joy is blotted out, and the energy burns low, it is not a sign that we have failed, but that the mind of God is bent still more urgently upon us. What we may pray for and desire is courage, to live eagerly in joy and not less eagerly in sorrow; to be self-controlled in happiness and courageous in trouble." Ruskin.
