feeling

It always seemed strange to me that the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system.

And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

They [Young People] have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things -- and that means having exalted notions.

They overdo everything -- they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

How deep a wound to morals and social purity has that accursed article of the celibacy of the clergy been! Even the best and most enlightened men in Romanist countries attach a notion of impurity to the marriage of a clergyman.
