First Line: Who never wept knows laughter but a jest
Last Line: The sweetness and the peace of real content.
Subject(s): Adversity


Who never wept knows laughter but a jest;
Who never failed, no victory has sought;
Who never suffered, never lived his best;
Who never doubted, never really thought;
Who never feared, real courage has not shown;
Who never faltered, lacks a real intent;
Whose soul was never troubled has not known
The sweetness and the peace of real content.
