...can only be paralleled by a story General Baden-Powell once told at a Boy Scout meeting. There was a boy, he related, who went to bed one night without having done his "kind act." Just as he was beginning to feel rather miserable about it, he heard a mouse in a trap in the room.
"What do you think he did?" asked the General, and the audience promptly replied:
"Let it out."
"Not at all," replied the General; "he hadn't done his kind act: he thought of the cat."
Kindness is wisdom.There is none in life But needs it and may learn.
Beauty lives with kindness.--_Shakespeare_.
KINGS AND RULERS
_Kings and Emperors_
Kings and Emperors shall pass Like the sands within the glass.
See them passing even now, Shorn of power, and bent of brow!
Purblind they who saw not Fate Standing by the palace gate; Deaf were they, and their reward Is the Justice of the Lord!
--_Clinton... Bailey, Philip James
