What are people short on [lacking]? They are short on confidence, aren’t they? Where are they going to learn confidence? Well, all of us came equipped with a full store of it, but most of us, battered with distress when very young, have put it down in the third sub-basement where we decided to keep it out of sight until the situation is favorable. Since the appearance of confidence is what is needed to make the situation more favorable, we need to go against some of our fears, take out a few boxes of our confidence, spread it around in the open air.
