Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; and adversity is not without comforts and hopes.
Prosperity doth best discover vice, but adversity doth best discover virtue.
From Bacon’s Essay “Of Adversity” (1625)
The pipes in the Jager Haus (formerly known as the Bunk House) are still frozen. Such adversity we suffer here at Farther Along Farm in rural Mississippi.
