Countervail - to evenly match other forces.

If you are valiant and are able to avail yourself of a foison of countervailing measures, you just might prevail.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

One may countervail or prevail. If you lose you may have to vail (bow in submission). If you can’t prevail you may want to avail yourself of some available alternatives. If all else fails, and you are woman, you may take the veil. If you are a men you will have to skulk in the darkness.
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.
