NUMBER:7117
AUTHOR:Robert Browning (1812–1889)
QUOTATION:        Then welcome each rebuff
      That turns earth’s smoothness rough,
Each sting that bids nor sit nor stand, but go!
      Be our joys three-parts pain!
      Strive, and hold cheap the strain;
Learn, nor account the pang; dare, never grudge the throe!
ATTRIBUTION:Rabbi Ben Ezra.
