    "Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid."

    Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
    Of crystal, wandering water,
    Thou art an emblem of the glow
    Of beauty--the unhidden heart--
    The playful maziness of art
    In old Alberto's daughter;

    But when within thy wave she looks--
    Which glistens then, and trembles--
    Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
    Her worshipper resembles;
    For in his heart, as in thy stream,
    Her image deeply lies--
    His heart which trembles at the beam
    Of her soul-searching eyes.
