The Possibility of the Impossible

If those canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth - Mark ix. 23

So nigh is grandeur to our dust,
  So near is God to man,
When Duty whispers low, Thou must,
  The youth replies, I can.

                                               R. W Emerson

KNOW that "impossible", where truth and mercy and everlasting voice of nature order, has no place in the brave man's dictionary. That when all men have said "Impossible", and tumbled noisily elsewhither, and thou alone art left, then first thy time and possibility have come. It is for thee now : do thou that, and ask no man's counsel, but thy own only and God's. Brother, thou hast possibility in thee for much : the possibility of writing on the eternal skies the record of a heroic life.
