HS Encouragement

"Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves on a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles- a delight in climbing rugged paths, which you would perhaps never know if you did not sometime slip backward-- if the road was always smooth and pleasant. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. Sometime, somewhere, somehow we shall find that which we seek. " Helen Keller (1)
