SCHOOL But not one of us know* a sweet-tempered generous heart that Is lonely or forgotten, tlo, nor ever will--not while fire burns, and water runs downhill, and men nnd women love laughter and goodncaa and unselfishness. That Is probably Oio answer, the explanation. Being "difficult" Is really only being iwlflsh and egotistical, To object and question and criticise Is only an effort to moke yourself unimportant above others. Rocks don't move, and we stumble over them. But fluid things, living things, change and adapt themselves.
