I Stood Yesterday,  I Can Stand Today
The Story
I have been through the depths of poverty and sickness. When people ask me what has kept me going through the troubles that come to all of us, I always reply: "I stood yesterday, I can stand today. And I will not permit myself to think about what might happen tomorrow."
                I have known want and struggle and anxiety and despair. I have always had to work beyond the limit of my strength. As I look back upon my life, I see it as a battlefield strewn with the wrecks of dead dreaks and broken hopes and shattered illusions---a battle in which I always fought with the odds tremendously against me, and which has left me scarred and bruised and maimed and old before my time.
                Yet I have no pity for myself; no tears to shed over the past and gone sorrows; no envy for the women who have been spared all I have gone through.  For I have lived. They only existed. I have drank the cup of life down to its very dregs. They have only sipped the bubbles on top of it. I know things they will never know. I see things to which they are blind. It is only the women whose eyes have been washed clear with tears who get the broad vision that makes them little sisters to all the world.
                  I have learned in the great University of Hard Knocks a philosophy that no woman who has had an easy life ever acquires. I uave learned to live each day as it comes and not to borrow trouble by dreading the morrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes coward of us. I put that dread from me because experiences has taught me that when the time comes that I so fear, the strength and wisdom to meet it will be given me. Little annoyances no longer have the power to affect me. After you have seen your whole edifice of happiness topple and crash in ruins about you, doilies under the finger bowls, or the cook spills the soup.
                  I have learned not to expect too much of people, and I can still get happiness out of the friend who isn't quite true to me or the acquaintance who gossips. Above all,  I have acquired a sense of humor,  because there were so many things over which I had either to cry or laugh. And when a woman can joke over the troubles instead of having hysterics, nothing can ever hurt her much again. I do not regret the hardships I have known,  because through them I have touched life at every point I have lived. And it was worth the price I had to pay.
