We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.…
Coleridge tells of a midshipman in his fourteenth year going into action for the first time, knees tottering, courage failing, and a fit of fainting hastening on, when Sir Alexander Ball saw him, touched him, and said, "Courage, my dear boy! you will recover in a minute or so. I was just the same when I first went out in this way." It was as if an angel spoke to him. "From that moment I was as the oldest of the boat's crew." You can help one another, and you should for your own sake.
