READ THIS AND CHEER UP!
"The world is too big for us. Too much going on, too many crimes,
too much violence and excitement. Try as you will, you get behind
in the race, in spite of yourself. It's an incessant strain to keep pace.
And still, you lose ground. Science empties its discoveries on you so
fast that you stagger beneath them in hopeless bewilderment. The
political world is news seen so rapidly you're out of breath trying to
keep pace with who's in and who's out. Everything is high pressure.
Human nature can't endure much more!"
