Every man should examine his own genius,and advise with himself what is proper to apply himself to; for nothing can be more distant from tranquillity and happiness than to be engaged in a course of life for which nature has rendered thee unfit; for an active life is not to be undertaken by an unactive person; nor an unactive life by an active person: to one,rest is quiet and action labour; to another,rest is labour and action quiet: a mild and timorous man should avoid a military life,a bold and impatient man the easy; for one cannot brook war,nor the other peace.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

Yet for overcoming what is hard and strong,
Nothing surpasses it.”
