From Pulvis et Umbra

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
 
IT 1 is not strange if we are tempted to despair of good … our religions and moralities have been trimmed to flatter us, till they are all emasculate and sentimentalised, and only please and weaken. Truth is of a rougher strain. In the harsh face of life faith can read a bracing gospel.  1
