In some way or other we must all meet disappointments and experience defeats now and then. Life is full of contests in which many contend but only one wins the prize. Both in the case of the winner and of the loser there is a fine opportunity for noble behavior. Sometimes the victor bears himself in such a way as to tarnish or sadly blot the honor he has won. Thus those who have been successful may suffer a far worse defeat in themselves, failing in manliness and in true nobility of spirit. There is a Bible word which tells us that he who rules his own spirit is greater than he that taketh a city. Self-mastery is the finest heroism and the finest achievement in life. The winner in the race adds yet more honor to his successes when he bears himself worthily, and the loser, robs his defeat of all humiliation when he meets it in a manly and generous way. A generous man rejoices in another’s honor.
