never be thwarted.......................

34.   Press on steadily, keep to the straight road in your thinking and doing, and your days will ever flow on smoothly.  The soul of man, like the souls of all rational creatures, has two things in common with the soul of God:  it can never be thwarted from without, and its good consists in the righteousness of character and action, and in confining every wish thereto.

-Marcus Aurelius,  Meditations, from Book Five
