New roads; new ruts. G. K. Chesterton

my birthday 08 024

The Easy Roads Are Crowded

“The Few”
The easy roads are crowded,
And the level roads are jammed;
The pleasant little rivers
With the drifting folks are crammed.
But off yonder where it’s rocky,
Where you get a better view,
You will find the ranks are thinning
And the travellers are few.

KATE VISIT 1 035

Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.

FOOLISH FEAR DOUBLES DANGER.

 

FEAR IS A GREAT INVENTOR.

When we have reached the summit of a vain ambition, we have only reached a
pinnacle where we have nothing to hope, but everything to fear. — Colton. Lacon.

In Gaelic Proverbs there is plain and consistent inculcation of the virtues of Truthfulness. Honesty, Fidelity, Self-restraint, Self-esteem, Sense of Honour, Courage, Caution, in word and deed. Generosity, Hospitality, Courtesy, Peaceableness, Love of Kindred,
Patience, Promptness, Industry, Providence. There are  none to be found excusing or recommending Selfishness,  Cunning, Time-serving, or any other form of vice or
meanness.
