“WHY ARE YOU SO JOYFUL? DON’T YOU FEEL THE INJUSTICE OF MANKIND?”

26 Jan

“You are never in ill-humour,” was remarked to a woman who was known to have a sore trial in her family; “is it because you do not feel the injustice of mankind, nor the annoyance of everyday life?”

“I feel them as you do,” she replied; “but they do not wound me.”

“You have, then, special remedies for them?”

“Yes, for the annoyance of persons I have affection; for those of things I have prayer; and over each smarting wound I pronounce these words: God wills it.”

– From: Golden Grains, Eighth Edition, H.M. Gill and Son, Dublin 1889
