. . . . We Mean to Write One Story. . .
IT has been said that the life of everyone is a diary in which they mean to write one story, but proceed to write another.
Their humblest hour is when they compare the book as it is, with what they had hoped to make it. The comparison, of course, will bring about a feeling of inadequacy, incompetence, frustration, and despair. None of these is a good feeling and will only lead either to self-pity or self-condemnation if cause and remedy are not found.
