Side 101 - the ways of wisdom are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths peace," is it wise to say, " Let me put off the attainment of this happiness to a future period?" Surely the sooner you begin to enjoy advantages so radical and precious, the better.

They teach the youthful mind to sigh after beauty and happiness that never existed; to despise the little good which fortune has mixed in our cup, by expecting more than she ever gave...
