ON FAITH AND PRESEVERANCE

For, in as much as hopes have proved dupes, his fears too may be liars. They may falsify their appearances or belie their own talents. They could be overcome easily. They could be bent, twisted, shaped, polished and renamed, if necessary. Perseverance deals with them sternly. Fears, in fact challenge your mettle and test your endurance and perseverance. If you stand firm like rock and throw counterchallenge, they prostrate before you and melt at your sight even. So, summon up your courage and be ready to fight those frightful fears. At your grim determination, all your fears will fear at their hollowness and begin to crumble down soon. Thus humbled, they invite you to the victory-stand and adore you with garlands. Mind you, fearlessness is another name for manliness. Keep it up! And go ahead!

Even the inanimate Nature, the poet says teaches many invaluable lessons to this point in question. The illustrations the poet. A.H. Clough cites are indeed picturesque. And hence the images stick on to the your mental board more permanently then the board itself. It enlightens and impresses with a single shot. The waves, says the poet, are incessantly dashing against the rocky soil, anti are beating down with all their might to gain an Inca of land and to submerge it with its saline water. I fey seem, as if they are bent upon extending their dominion over the rocks by melting or powdering them at any cost. But the break proof bard rock offers stubborn resistance, and withstands their onslaughts with matchless firmness that makes the waves bend down for a while, recognizing the superior might of the solid, unchangeable and unshakable rock. Would the waves withdraw their operations once for all dispirited,. frustrated and beaten down? No! They never make a retreat or cease their efforts. They know and have well-digested the truth of the dictum - 'try and try again, you will succeed at last'. So they move on and on, and beat again and again to gain a fraction of an inch at least else where.
