I wish this didn't resonate so.

"My mind and my heart always wish'd to do well, but despair at myself and my situation often depriv'd me of all energy, and drew me into errors. Sometimes it was better, when I had hope I then could rouse myself, but at times I have sunk to a situation of despair that made me fly to anything for resource."

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, to her mother Lady Spencer, September 9, 1793
