Excerpt from The Discarded Son, or Haunt of the Banditti, Vol. 1 of 5: A Tale
"In struggling with misfortunes
Lies the proof of virtue: on smooth seas
How many bawble boats dare set their sails,
And make an equal way with firmer vessels!
But let the tempest once enrage the sea,
And then behold rhe strong-ribb'd Argosie
Bounding between the ocean and the air,
Like Perseus mounted on his Pegasus:
Then where are those weak rivals of the main!
Or to avoid the tempest fled to port,
Or made a prey to Neptune. Even thus
Do empty show and true priz'd worth divide
In storms of fortune."
