Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives under the shadow of an event that has not yet come to pass?
They believe that nothing will happen because they have closed their doors.
All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than animals that know nothing.
Can we conceive what humanity would be if it did not know the flowers?
An act of goodness is of itself an act of happiness. No reward coming after the event can compare with the sweet reward that went with it.
Many a happiness in life, as many a disaster, can be due to chance, but the peace within us can never be governed by chance.
