The whole company felt disturbed at this, that a thing so much praised, and about which the father had said so many things, should be found so very different; and they began to think that all the rest would be of the same sort.When I noticed this, I tried to encourage them as well as I could, telling them that Your Lordship had always thought that this part of the trip would be a waste of effort, and that we ought to devote our attention to those Seven Cities and the other provinces about which we had information that these should be the end of our enterprise. With this resolution and purpose, we all marched cheerfully along a very bad way, where it was impossible to pass without making a new road or repairing the one that was there, which troubled the soldiers not a little, considering that everything which the friar had said was found to be quite the reverse; because, among other things which the father had said and declared, he said that the way would be plain and good, and that there would be only one small hill of about half a league.

Most people are like the garbage truck. They carry with them loads of garbage in their minds, in the form of hatred, resentment, anger, and other rubbish thoughts. These people inadvertently will find ways to unload them onto you. This pic above I took on a 10 mile hike deep into the Grand Tetons. When we entered the trail there was a sign that said bears have been active and watch out for an aggressive moose, hmm. However, we survived.
