THE QUESTION ANSWERED BY ASKING QUESTIONS
HORACE G. PLATT
How can you banish " anger " until you banish wrong, injustice, and human nature? How can you banish " worry until you banish hope, disappointment, failure, incompetency, bad luck, hate, love, uncertainty? How can an angry man be happy, or allow any one with whom he comes in contact to be happy? How can "worry" and " con-tent" be coincident? and how can happiness exist without contentment?
There is no such thing as happiness two hours in duration.
But I am tired and overworked. Your letter comes at the wrong time. I am looking through a glass darkly, and therefore prove that your question has to be answered only relatively and as present conditions dictate.
