“Without the circumstantial challenge of discouragement the best in human character would never rise to achievement. The whole career of the Redeemer of mankind is synonymous with discouragement - dark, bitter and relentless. Yet no one ever accomplished so much - while yet seeming to fail so hopelessly.” (E.J. Kiefer)

Charles Burchfield, January 21, 1937
