• When we see ourselves in a situation which must be endured and gone through, it is best to make up our minds to it, meet it with firmness, and accommodate everything to it in the best way practicable. This lessens the evil; while fretting and fuming only serves to increase your own torments.

    Thomas Jefferson (1964). “To the Girls and Boys: Being the Delightful, Little-known Letters of Thomas Jefferson to and from His Children and Grandchildren”
