"Take for God's truth that which harmonizes with all the best you know and helps and strengthens you in nobility of life.”

TENNYSON.

“Error and evil are located in deficiency or excess. Even excess in virtue is evil, an excess of humility being abjectness; of courage, rashness; of prudence, corwardice; of patience, indifference; of economy, parsimony; of generosity, waste; of deference, obsequiousness. And so also an excess of learning is pedantry; of ease, indolence; of comfort, self-indulgence: of zeal, fanaticism. Right and justice are found in moderation, in the golden mean-in the true balancebetween overdoing and underdoing, going too fast and too slow."

ORLANDO J. SMITA,
Balance The Fundamental Verily, p. 43.
