There is a moral grandeur in thep
thoughtI have made myself Thet
world may wag their heads and you I
may be denounced but if you are con
scious of that integrity of purpose k
which has always characterized you and l
that you now stand on an eminence
placed there by your own rectitude ofE
heart you have nothing to fear Youc
had not the influence of wealth nor thes
God speed you of powerful friends I g
but you had morea heart fixed and de I
termined l and this is what has made J i
you what you are Go onadd virtue b
to virtue looksteadily at the goal be 2
fore you and at last your best teachers s
and artful companions will acknowledge n
your superiority and feel proud of be t
ing among the number of your friends s
The map who is resolved to be some S
thing in the world should have nothing
to fear and when he little dreams of it
honors are gathering about his head I
and an influence goes out from him tc
which is exerted silently but surely fory
the goon of thousandsV bi
