ANXIETY, Useless. Bulstrode Whitlock, Cromwell’s envoy to Sweden, was one night so disturbed in mind over the state of his nation, that he could not sleep. His servant, ob- serving it, said, " Pray, sir, will you give me leave to ask you a question ? " — " Certainly." — " Do you think that God governed the world very well before you came into it ? " — " Undoubtedly." — " And do you not think that he will govern the world quite as well when you are gone out of it ? " — " Certainly." — " Then, pray, sir, excuse me : do you not think that you may trust him to govern it as long as you live ? " No answer could be given, and composure and sleep followed.

Nothing is so dangerous as an ignorant friend. Jean De La Fontaine 1621-1695, French Poet

3106. FAITH, and Love. Some naturalists desired to obtain the wild-flowers that grew on the side of a dangerous gorge in the Scotch Highlands. They offered a boy a liberal sum to descend by a rope, and get them. He looked at the money, thought of the danger, and replied, " I will, if my father will hold the rope." With unshrinking nerves, he suffered his father to put the rope about him, lower him into that abyss, and to suspend him there while he filled his little basket with the coveted flowers.

ABSTINENCE, as a Remedy. An elderly gentleman, accustomed to indulge, entered the room of a certain Inn, where sat a grave friend by the fire. Lifting a pair of green spectacles upon his forehead, rubbing his inflamed eyes, and calling for hot brandy and water, he complained that "his eyes were getting weaker and weaker, and that even spectacles didn’t seem to do them any good." — "I’ll tell thee, friend," replied the Quaker, " what I think. If thee was to wear thy spectacles over thy mouth for a few months, thy eyes would get round again."

Can a man of thought and spirit be harnessed thus, and trudge along, like a pack-horse, in a deep, stinking, muddy road, when he may frisk it over the beauteous lawns, or lose himself, agreeably, in the shady, verdant mazes of unrestrained contemplation

Actually, though, the thoughts tell you what the feelings are.

" Still, he’s a wary bird, and thinks aright, ‘ The better part of valour is discretion ; ‘ So if you come too near, he takes to flight, With pompous gravity beyond expression.

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. G. K. Chesterton

The Great Prince of Paradox

KIDZHOLS5 080

”Mending Wall,” Frost.

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.”

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbour know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
‘Stay where you are until our backs are turned!’
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of out-door game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbours’.
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
‘Why do they make good neighbors? Isn’t it
Where there are cows?
But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That wants it down.’ I could say ‘Elves’ to him,
But it’s not elves exactly, and I’d rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me~
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, "Good fences make good neighbors."
