“The young butterfly wrapped in its cocoon is a helpless thing, but as it struggles to break open its prison, it gains strength and every added struggle increases its power to free itself. Let someone aid the struggling butterfly, and it will die. It must grow by testing all its powers. We may make our saddest moments our times of greatest spiritual and moral growth, if we hold fast our faith in God under the fiery trials that come.”
