    Still, I will never cease advising my friends and enemies to read poetry before anything. Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation methods and addresses. I promised to deal with your case, O man who hates art and literature, and I have dealt with it. If we further analyse our vague, uneasy aspiration, we shall, I think, see that it springs from a fixed idea that we ought to do something in addition to those things which we are loyally and morally obliged to do.

    I am persuaded that many excellent persons, if they were confronted with the alternatives of reading "Paradise Lost" and going round Trafalgar Square at noonday on their knees in sack-cloth, would choose the ordeal of public ridicule. I read them as I may in odd moments. All rights reserved. You are "penned in town," but you love excursions to the country and the observation of wild life—certainly a heart-enlarging diversion. One loses, in the study of cause and effect, that absurd air which so many people have of being always shocked and pained by the curiousness of life.

    No newspaper reading in trains! I don't mind. Yet I know men whose lives are a burden to themselves and a distressing burden to their relatives and friends simply because they have failed to appreciate the obvious. You actually spend in earning your livelihood—how much? Copyright laws in most countries are in a constant state of change. My contention is that the full use of those seven-and-a-half hours will quicken the whole life of the week, add zest to it, and increase the interest which you feel in even the most banal occupations.
