A person without endurance is night and day in torture. For life can be pictured as the waves of the sea, always slapping and knocking against what is standing firm. One who is susceptible of being moved by this continual motion of life has no rest for a single moment. It is said, "There is no peace for the wicked." It is really not "for the wicked" but "for the weak," because wickedness is the extension of weakness. Endurance is an exercise of strengthening the will-power. The nature of life will always remain the same, it is man who can change himself. But generally people wish life to become still, because they are disturbed.
