To stimulate feeling and do nothing in consequence is a short road to destroy the feeling. Cultivate forbearance till your heart yields a fine crop of it. Pray fora short memory as to all unkindne s. We complain that our life is short, and yet we throw away much of it, and are weary of many of its p:rts. Little by little fortunes are aceumu lited; little by little knowledge isl gained; little by little character is achieved. ile who decides in any case, without hearing the other side of the iuestion, though he may det rmine justly, is not therefore just. Some books art. to be tasted, others to be swall:wed, and a few to be thorough ly di-,e-ted. But a good many ought to be thrown inte the fire. I on't be a grl...
