Christmas is not only the mile-mark of another
year, moving us to thoughts of self-examinataion:
it is a season, from all its associations, whether do
mestic or religious, suggesting thoughts of joy. A
man dissatisfied with his endeavors is a man tempted
to sadness. And in the midst of the winter, when his
life runs lowest and he is reminded of the empty
chairs of his beloved, it is well he should be condemn
ed to this fashion of the smiling face.
To be honest, to be kind—to earn a little and to
spend a little less, to make upon the whole a family
happier for his presence, to renounce when that shall
be necessary and not be embittered, to keep a few
friends but these WITHOUT CAPITULATION—
above all, on the same grim condition, to keep
FRIENDS WITH HIMSELF—here is a task for
ALL that a man has of fortitude and delicacy. He
has an ambitious soul who would ask more; he has a
hopeful spirit who should look in such an enterprise
to be successful.
Gentleness and cheerfulness, these come before all
morality; they are THE PERFECT DUTIES. And
it is the trouble with "moral" men that they have
neither one nor other. It was the moral man, the
Pharisee, whom Christ could not away with. If
your morals make you dreary depend upon it they
are wrong. I do not say "give them up," for they
may be all you have; but conceal them like a vice,
lest they should spoil the lives of better and
f SIMPLER people 1
There is an idea abroad among moral people that
they should make their neighbors good. One person
I have to make good: MYSELF. But my duty to
Bay neighbor is much more neatly expressed by say
ing that I have to make him happy—if I may.
• • *
In his own life, then, a man is not to expect happi
ness, only to profit by it gladly when it shall arise;
HE IS ON DUTY HERE; he knows not how or why,
and does not need to know; he knows not for what
hire, and must not ask. Somehow or other, though
Ite does not know what goodness is, he must try to be
good; somehow or other, though he cannot tell what
will do it, he must try to give happiness to others.
• • *
To look back upon the past year, and see how lit
tle we have striven and to what small purpose; and
how often we have been cowardly and hung back, or
temerarious and rushed unwisely in; and how every)
day and all day long we have transgressed the law of I
kindness; —it may seem a paradox, but in the bitter
ness of these discoveries, a certain consolation re
sides. Life is not designed to minister to a man' 3
vanity. When the time comes that he should go,
there need be few illusions left about himself.
HERE LIES ONE WHO MEANT WELL,
TREED A LITTLE, FAILED MUCH:—surely that
may be his epitaph, of which he need not be ashamed!
