Think of the qualities of your fellows

Whenever you want to cheer yourself, think of the qualities of your fellows -- the energy of one, for example, the decency of another, the generosity of a third, some other merit in a fourth. There is nothing so cheering as the stamp of virtue manifest in the character of colleagues -- and the greater the collective incidence, the better. So keep them ready at hand.
