“I certainly have no enviable life, full of troubles and anxiety and responsibilities. Nevertheless, the good God seems to compensate for my wretchedness. Everything proceeds in such a way that one has to say “Forward!” The thing is practicable in and for itself, and after a couple of years nothing will be needed but a capable man who, combining a spiritual life with extraordinary skill, will stamp the whole with the proper spirit. There are many flexible tools, if only they are used well.”

St. Vincent, March 12, 1849
