About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from A Forest Hearth: A Romance of Indiana in the Thirties A Strenuous sense of justice is the most disturbing of all virtues, and those persons in whom it predominates are usually as disagreeable as they are good. Any one who assumes the high plane of justice to all, and confusion to sinners, may easily gain a reputation for goodness simply by doing thing bad. Look wise and heavenward, frown severely but regretfully upon other's faults, and the world will whisper, Ah, how good he is! And you will be good - as the sinless, prickly pear. If the virtues of omission constitute saintship, and from a study of the calendar one might so conclude, seek your corona by the way of justice. For myself, I would rather be a layman with a few active virtues and a small sin or two, than a sternly just saint without a fault. Breed virtue in others by giving them something to forgive. Conceive, if you can, the unutterable horror of life in this world without a few blessed human faults. He who sins t at all, cant easily find reason to forgive; and to for give those who trespass against us, is one of the sweetest benedictions of life. I have kwn many persons who built their moral structure upon the single rock of justice; but they all bred wretchedness among those who loved them, and made life harder because they did t die young.
