While you sail with the fair winds, fear shipwreck, and you will have less risk of shipwreck if you use the fear as a helper. Let the gift bring feasting, not mourning. Let the talent be cultivated, not buried in the ground. Let there be some time between the gift and [your death], that not only may the record of evils be wiped out, but better things may also be written, that you may not have only the gift but also the reward, that you may not only flee the fire but also inherit the glory, which is granted to those who cultivate the gift.

Let us be baptized, then, that we may be victorious.
