But God who steers my life will direct my course. Press on, gentlemen.
  • True. I'm talking about dreams, which are the offspring of a lazy brain. They're conceived by nothing but idle fantasy, which is as insubstantial as the air, and more unpredictable than the wind, which one moment favours the frozen north and then, becoming angry, blows away turning to face the milder south
