TO ATTAIN LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 17 January 1885

TO ATTAIN LONG LIFE, Some oho wisely says that ho who strives ■after a long and pleasant term' of life must seek to atlaiu continual equanimity uiul carefully to avoid'every thing which too vio lently taxes his feelings. Nothing more quicky consumes the vigour ol'lU'o than the violence of the emotions of the mind. Wo know, that anxiety and care can destroy the healthiest body ; we know that- l'right and fear, yes,, excess, of joy becomes deadly. Those who are naturally cool, and of a quiet turn of mind, upon/whom nothing can make to powerful an impression, who aro not wont-to be excited either by great: sorrow or great fpy, have the best chance of living long and happy after their manner. Pre serve, therefore, under all circumstances, a composure of mind which no happiness, no misfortune, can too much disturb. Love no thing too violently; hate nothing too pas sionately; fear< nothing.; too strangly. During the year 1884 there wero 91S eases of insolvency in New South "Wal...
