Across Time, Nothing Changes

Salmon P. Chase wrote it better during December 1829 than I ever could.

I feel humbled and mortified by the conviction that the Creator has gifted  me with intelligence almost in vain. I am almost twenty two and have as yet attained but the threshold of knowledge.  …

The night has seldom found me much advanced beyond the station I occupied in the morning … I almost despair of ever making any figure in the world.

My new hobby: considering law schools.
