said this one chap, then pointing to his head he continued,
“But when it comes to matters mental, I think ‘one thought, one vote’

After hearing me say that
“without spies and traitors inside your own system

In the wondrous (if not silly) way in which Life is arranged,
a man finds the occasions wherein he has the time for repentance occurring
much more often than do the chances to sin in the first place.
The restraint of feeling intellectually superior is without doubt
a consummate example of an unavoidable, complete waste of time.
