green began to show among the crumbling shale of the little ledge,
has really seen the violets that grow there.
But think you these violets are any less rich in their color
ing or less delicate in their veining, any less graceful in their lines
or less prompt in their waking in the spring because none of us ever
goes there to see them?
Don't you fool yourself. Whether or not you come and look
is as immaterial to the violet as the phases of the moon's of Saturn,
are to you. ' ' .
What, then are violets made for, if not to be seen Or smelled or
bought and sold or preached about? , y
Not for anything that directly concerns us; you may be sure.
To work out some secret destiny of their own perhaps, but certainly
not merely toj)lease us, orto give us texts for serrnons, or to be worn
over the hearts of our women.
Fact is, we don't know what violets -are made for. And never
will. Perhaps violets know, but be sure they wont tell.
This, toois one of life's minor mysteries.
