If you have no confidence in self you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence you have won even before you have started.
God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.
