I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. We can do anything we want to if we stick to it long enough. I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble. I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming. Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light. Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged. The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.
