Author Quotes

A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man. Kites rise against and not with the wind. Even a head wind is better than none. No man ever worked his passage anywhere in a dead calm. Let no man wax pale, therefore, because of opposition.

Opposition is what we want and must have, to be good for anything. Hardship is the native soil of manhood and self-reliance.
