The only guide to a man is his conscience; the only shield to his memory is the rectitude and sincerity of his actions. It is very imprudent to walk through life without this shield, because we are so often mocked by the failure of our hopes and the upsetting of our calculations; but with this shield, however the facts may play, we march always in the ranks of honor. If a man has greatness in him, it comes to light-not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of his daily work.
