Caleb’s Daughter (1914 poem)

But I thought of Judah’s glory, and I summoned all my will;
When our women fail in courage, shall our men be fearless still?
And I lifted steadfast glances, and my lips pressed back the moan,
“Go,” I said, “and God be with you!” Then I sought the tents alone. (Stanza 9)

Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 5 (“When our women fail in courage, / Shall our men be fearless still?”).
