Mayflower Descendant - Abigail was born and baptised on the same day in Braintree, Massachusetts. Which is south of Quincey Bay, off of Boston Harbor. She was a 4th. generation Mayflower Descendant in the line of John and Pricilla Alden and their daughter, Ruth (Alden) Bass. She was the daughter of Samuel Bass (1660-1751) and his second wife, Mary [Adams] Bass (1667-1706). On June 11th., 1714 she married John Wild [1691-1776] when she was 17 years of age. He was the son of John and Sarah [Hayden] Wild who were married in about 1690. Also, thier will was probated on Nov. 27th., 1732. I am descended from them and their son Samuel Wilde [1732-1794], a 5th. generation Mayflower Descendant. May she rest in peace... CAN'T: Can't is the worst that's written or spoken; doing more harm here than slander and lies; on it is many a strong spirt broken, and with it many a good purpose dies. It springs from the lips of the thoughtless each morning, and robs us of courage we need through the day, it rings in our ears like a timely sent warning, and laughs when we falter and fall by the way.~~~ Can't is the father of feeble endeavor, the parent of terror and half hearted work; it weakens the efforts of artisans clever, and makes of the toiler an indolent shirk. It poisons the soul of the man with a vision, it stifles in infancy many a plan; it greets honest toiling with open derision, and mocks at the hopes and dreams of a man.~~~ Can't is a word none should speak without blushing; to utter it should be a symbol of shame, ambition and courage it daily is crushing, it blights a man's purpose and shortens his aim. Despise it with all of your hatred of error; refuse it the lodgement it seeks in your brain, arm against it as a creature of terror, and all that you dream of you some day shall gain.~~~ Can't is the word that is foe to ambition, an enemy ambushed to shatter your will; its prey is forever the man with a mission, and bows but to courage and patience and skill. Hate it, with hatred that's deep and undying, for once it is welcomed 'twill break any man; whatever the goal you are seeking, keep trying, and answer this demon by saying; "I can." ~Unknown~
