The visionary are always hopeful; the romantic aro always sweet and tender. Thn old woman who smile at a memory of a love story her days, havo long since, told is younger, broader in mind and charity, sweeter and more wholesome and j helpful than tbo old woman who regards a confession of love as an admission of weakness or shame.

Urillaf-Savarin said that to invito a guest, to vour house is to la Ho charge of his happiness from Ihe moment of hi. arrival to that of his departure.
