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