Excerpt from The Majesty of Calmness: Individual Problems and Possibilities

NO man in the world ever attempted to wrong another without being injured in return, - some way, somehow, sometime. The only weapon of offence that Nature seems to recognize is the boomerang. Nature keeps her books admirably; she puts down every item, she closes all accounts finally, but she does not always balance them at the end of the month. TO the man who is calm, revenge is so far beneath him that he can not reach it, - even by stooping. When injured, he does not retaliate; he wraps around him the royal robes of Calmness, and he goes quietly on his way.

When the hand of Death touches the one we hold dearest, paralyzes our energy, and eclipses the sun of our life, the calmness that has been accumulating in long years becomes in a moment our refuge, our reserve strength.
