At first, says Mr. Baker, “in those ardent early
days, he thought he would be ready for the great
task at 45; when he was 15 he looked forw ard to
50. At 50 he was in a desperate struggle over the
reorganization of Princeton university. Nothing
done ¡Nothing done!” And the years slip by. He
becomes a national figure in politics, goes out
from the cloistered life of the campus to be gov
ernor of Newr Jersey. He is nominated for presi
dent of the United States, and elected. But the
great work is not accomplished, the dream has
not come true. The most powerful figure in the
world, he leads a mighty nation—le«~cis the
mightiest of mighty nations—into the most ter
rific war of all time. He rises to unprecedented
heights, rides the crest, then the sun begins to
His health breaks, death hovers, he beats it
back; the hour strikes for him to leave the office
he has held so capably for eight years—during
nearly a decade. And then—“in the broken days
after his retirement from the presidency the old
vision flared up again. He wrill yet write the great
book! The novum organon of politics! When he
closed his tired eyes for the last time the magnum
opus was still unpenned.”
Is it not true of every last one of us? W'hat
dreahiers we are and what dreams we dream?
Many another man has risen to great heights as
life has swept along to the sunset years without
realizing the one dearest dream of his existence.
It may have been of writing a monumental book,
or of composing an opera, or only owning some
day in his own blessed right a comer of the soil
where he could make the fragrant flowers grow,
where he could sit at evening and watch the stars
come out arid listen to the crickets chirp. No mat
ter what, he dreams his dream—the dre^m that
won’t come true. Every man has his Carcassonne.
Perhaps it is better so. The wise men tell us,
have always told us, that anticipation is better
than realization, that the yearning to achieve is
more to be desired than the thing achieved. Is not
life itself a tempestuous dream unrealized? There
is forever that mysterious Something that we nev
er quite make out. Is it not the insoluble enigma -
that lies back of all our metaphysics, that turns
our gaze upward to th 1 heavens and makes real
and indestructible our belief in immortality?
Baffled here, man does not despair, but lifts
his eyes and strives to pierce the veil that shrouds
eternity’s undawned Tomorrow. And he feels, he
dares to hope, that some day, out there beyond
the dark, he will understand.
He dreams his dream the dream that w »n’t
come true. And it is—it must be—better so.
Speaking of talkers, one of the things that
people in a democracy grow most tired of is the
use that is made of the right of free speech. Wit
less public speakers v aste more time of their fel
low men—time that might be spent at a movie or
playing poker or reading a detective story than
any other pest. So when Mussolini, the world’s
most popular tryant, signed a decree the other day
forbidding after November 6, “speeches of what
ever calibre," we were all for packing up and
moving over to Italy.
But there is a joker in that order, after all, that
constrains us to endure freedom a while longer.
Mussolini did an inspired thing when he silenced
the orators and forced them to return to work.
But there is one exception to the rule, and that is
Mussolini himself. He can go on making all the
speeches he wants to. and every reader of the
newspapers knows that Mussolini is one o f ' the
most tireless speakers in the world today.
We can endure a democracy in which every
man has the right to speak. \Ve miffht enjoy an
autocracy in which no man had the right to make
a speech. But we could never stomacn a tryanny
in which only the tyrant has the right to mount a
