“What generous beliefs console
The brave whom Fate denies the goal!
If others reach it, is content:
To Heavens high will his will is bent.
Firm on his heart relied,
What lot soeer betide,
Work of his hand
He nor repents nor grieves,
Pleads for itself the fact,
As unrepenting Nature leaves
Her every act.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
