Advice from the past for the present

“We should never despair, our Situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times.”

— George Washington (letter to Philip Schuyler, 7/15/1777)

Reference: Washington’s Maxims, 16.
