T Is Hot alone among the practtcnl
manilt'stutioiis of our life thnt
I there In need of making a clear-
A lug; the rluumlu of our Ideas Is In
the same case. Anarchy reigns in hu
man thought We walk In the woods
without compass or sun, lost among
the brambles and briers of infinite de
tail.
When once man has recognized the
fact that ho has an aim, and that this
elm Is to be a man, he organizes his
thought accordingly. Every mode of
thinking or Judging which does not
make him better and stronger be re
jects as dangerous.
And first of all he flees the too conr
mou contrariety of amusing himself
with his thought. Thought Is a tool,
with Its own proper function; It isn't a
toy. Let us take an example. ITere Is
the studio of a painter. The Implements
nro all In place; everything Indicates
that this assemblage of means Is ar
ranged with view to an end. Throw
the room open to npes. They will climb
on the benches, swing from the cords,
rig themselves In draperies, coif them
selves with slippers, Juggle with brush
es, nibble the colors and pierce the can
vases to see what Is behind the paint.
I don't question their enjoyment Cer
tainly they must find this kind of ex
ercise extremely interesting. But a"
atelier is not made to let monkeys
loose In. No more Is thought a ground
for acrobatic evolutions. A msn worthy
of the name thinks as be Is, as bis
tastes are; he goes about It with bis
whole iciii't, and not with that fitful
and sterile curiosity which, under pre
text of observing and noting every
thing, runs the risk of never experienc
ing a deep and truo emotion or accom
plishing a right deed.
f Another habit in urgent need of cor
rection, ordinary attendant on conven
tional life, Is the mania for examining
nnd analyzing -oneself at every turn.
I do not Invite men to neglect Intro
spection and the examination of con
science. The endeavor to understand
one's own mental attitudes and motives
of conduct Is nn essential element of
good living. Hut quite other is this ex
treme vigilance, this incessant obser
vation of one's life and thoughts, tills
dissecting of oneself, like a piece ot
mechanism. It is a waste of time and
Koes wide of the mark. The man who.
to prepare himself the bettor for walk
ing, should begin by making a rigid
anatomical examination of his means
of locomotion would risk dislocating
fomotlilng before he had taken a step.
You hnve what you need to walk with,
then forward! Tako care not to fall,
and two your forces with dlscretloa
Pottercrs and scruplo mongers are soon
reduced to inaction. It needs but a
glimmer of common sense to perceive
that man Is not made to pass his life
In a self centered trance.
And common sense do you not find
what in designated by tills uuuie be
coming as rare as the common sense
customs of other days? Common strnse
has become an old story. We must
have something new, end we create
a factitious existence a refinement ot
living,, that the vulgar crowd has not
the wherewithal to procure. It is so
agreeable to be distinguished I Instead
of conducting ourselves like rational
beings and using the means most ob
viously at our command we arrive, by
dint of absolute genius, at the most
astonishing singularities. Better off
the track than on the main ltnel All
the bodily defects and deformities that
orthopedy treats give trat a feeble Idea
of the humps, the tortuosities, the dis
locations we have Inflicted upon our
selves In order to depart from simple
common sense, and at our own ex-
pcuse we learn ttmt one does not de
form himself with Impunity. Novelty,
after all, Is ephemeral. Nothing en
dures but the eternal commonplace,
ind If one depart from that It Is to
run the most perilous risks. Happy
lo who is ablo to reclaim himself, who
Inds the way back to simplicity.
Good plain souse is not, as is often
Imagined, the Innate possession of the
Urst chance oomor, a mean and paltry
equipment that has cost nothing to
ny one. I would compare It to those
Did folk songs, unfathered, but death
less, which seem to have risen out of
the very heart of the people. Uood
lense Is a fund slowly and painfully
iccumulated by the Inbor of centuries.
It is a Jewel of the first water, whose
value he alone understands who has
lost It or who observes the lives of
others who have lost It. For my part
I think no price too great to pay for
gaining it and keeping it for the pos
lesslon of eyes that see and a Judg
ment that discerns. One takes good
rare of his sword that it be not bent
or rusted; with greater reason should
lie give heed to his thought.
But let this be well understood: An
appeal to common senso Is not an ap
peal to thought that grovels, to narrow
positivism which denies everything it
cannot s?o or touch; for to wish that
man should be absorbed In material
sensations, to the exclusion of the high
realities ot the Inner life, is also a want
of good sense. Here we touch upon a
tender point, round which tho greatest
battles of humanity are waging. In
truth, wo nro striving to attain a con
ception of life, searching it out amid
countless obscurities and griefs, and
everything that touches upon spiritual
realities becomes day by day more
painful. In the midst of the grave
perplexities and transleut disorders
that accompany great crises of thought
it seems more dlllicult than ever to es
cape with any simple principles. Yet
necessity itself comes to our aid, as it
has done for the men of all times. The
programme of life Is terribly sluiplo
after nil, uud In the fact that existence
so Imperiously forces herself upon us
she gives us notice that she precedes
any idea of her which we may make
for ourselves nnd that no one can put

stand life. Our philosophies, our ex
planations, our beliefs, are everywhere
confronted by facts, and these fuels,
prodigious, irrefutable, call us to order
when we would deduce life from our
reasonings and would wait to act until
we have ended philosophizing. It is
this happy necessity that prevents the
world from stopping while man ques
tion! his route. Travelers of a day,
we jire carried along in a vast move
ment to which we are called upon to
contribute, but which we have not fore
seen nor embraced In It entirety nor
penetrated as to its ultimate aims.
Our part is to fill faithfully the role of
private, which has devolved upon us,
and our thought should adapt Itself to
the situation. Do not say that we live
in more trying times than our ances
tors, for things seen from afar are of
ten seen imperfectly. It is, moreover,
scarcely gracious to complain of not
having been born in the days of one's
grandfather.
What we may believe least contesta
ble on the subject Is this: From the be
ginning of the world it has been hard
to see clearly; right thinking has been
difficult everywhere and always. In
the matter tho ancients wore In uo
wlse privileged above the moderns, and
It might be added that there Is no dif
ference between men when they are
considered from this point of view,
Master and servant, teacher and learn
er, writer and artisan, discern truth at
the same cost. The light that humanity
acquires in advancing Is no doubt of
the greatest use, but It also multiplies
the number and extent of human prob
lems. The difficulty is never removed;
tho mind always encounters its obsta
cle. The unknown controls us nnd
hems us In on all sides. But Just as
one need not exhaust a spring to
quench his thirst, so we need not know
everything to live. Humanity lives ami
always has lived on certain elemental
provisions.
We will try to point them out. First
of all, humanity Uvea by confidence. In
so doing It but reflects, commensurate
with Its conscious thought, that which
Is the hidden source of all beings. An
Imperturbable faith In the stability of
the universe and its Intelligent order
ing sleeps In everything that exists.
The flowers, the trees, the beasts of the
field, live In calm strength, in entire se
curity. There is confidence In the fall
hK rain, In dawning day, In the brook
running to the sea. Everything that
Is seems to say: "I am, therefore I
should be. There are good reasons for
this, rest assured."
Bo, too, mankind lives by confidence.
From the simple fact that bo Is, man
has within him the sufficient reason for
his being a pledge of assurance. lie
reposes In the power which has willed
that he should be. To safeguard this
confidence, to see that nothing discon
certs It, to cultivate it, render it more
personal, more evident toward this
should tend the first effort of our
thought All that augments confidence
within us is good, for from confidence
Is born the life without haste tranquil
energy, calm action, the love of Ufo
and Its fruitful labor. Deep seated con
fidence Is the mysterious spring that
sets In motion tho energy within us. It
Is our nutriment. By It man llvos much
more than by the bread be eats. And
so everything that shakes this confi
dence Is evil poison, not food.
Dangerous Is every system of thought
that attacks the very fact of life, de
claring It to be an evil. Life baa been
too often wrongly estimated In this
century. What wonder that tho tree
withers when its roots aro watered
with corrosives. And there Is an ex
tremely simple reflection that might
be made In the face of all this nega
tion. You say life la an evil. Well,
what remedy for it do you offer? Can
you combat it, suppress It? I do not
ask you to suppress your own life, to
commit suicide of what advantage
would that be to us? but to suppress
lif, not' merely humafT ltfe, but llf
at Its deep and hidden origin, all this
upspririglug of existence that puslifs
toward the light and, to your mind, Is
rushing to misfortune; I ask you to
supprei s the will to live that trembles
throug'i thj! Immensities of space, to
suppriss, In short, the source of life.
Can yju do it? No. Then leave us In
peace. Since no one can hold life In
che k is it not better to respect it
nd use It than to go about making
other people disgusted with it? When
one knows that certain food is danger
ous to health ho does not eat It, and
when a certain fashion of thinking
robs us of confidence, cheerfulness and
strength wo should reject that, certain
not only that it is a nutriment noxious to
the mind, but also that It Is false. There
Is no truth tor man but in thoughts
that aro human, and pessimism Is In
human. Besides, it wants as much In
modesty as In logic. To permit one
self to count as evil this prodigious
thing that we call llfo one needs have
seen its very foundation, almost to
have made it. What a strange atti
tude Is that of certain great thinkers
of our times! They act as If they had
created the world very long ago, In
their youth, but decidedly It was a mis
take, and they had well repented It
Let us nourish ourselves from other
meat, strengthen our souls with cheer
ing thoughts. What Is truest for man
Is what best fortifies him.
If mankind lives by confidence, K
lives also by hope that form of confi
dence which turns toward the future.
All llfo Is a result and au aspiration;
all that exists supposes an origin ami
teuds toward an end. Life Is progres
sion; progression is aspiration. The
progress of the future is au infinitude
of hope. Hope Is at the root of things
and must be reflected in the heart of
man; no hope, no life. The same pow
er which brought us Into being urges
us to go up higher. What is the mean
ing of this persistent instinct which
pushes us on? Tho true meaning is
that something is to result from life,
that out of It Is betug wrought a good
greater than. Itself, toward which It
slowly moves, end that tms pain mi
sower culled man needs, like every
sower, to count on the morrow. The
history of humanity Is the history of
indomitable hope; otherwise everything
would have bit.-ti over long ago. To
press forward under his burdens, to
guide himself in the night, to retrieve
his falls and his failures, to escape de
spair even In death, man has need of
hoping always, nnd sometimes against
all hope. Here Is the cordial that sus
tains him. Had we only logic we
should have long ago drawn the con
clusion, Death has everywhere the last
word, and we should be dead of the
(den. But we have hope, and that Is
why we live and believe In life.
Suso, the great monk and mystic,
one of the simplest and best men that
ever lived, had a touching custom.
Whenever he encountered a woman,
were she the poorest and oldest, he
stepped respectfully aside, though his
bare feet must tread among thorns or
iu the gutter. "I do that," he said, "to
render homage to our holy lady the
Virgin Mary." Let us ofTer to hope a
lilio reverence. If we meet It in the
shape of a blade of wheat piercing the
furrow, a bird brooding on Its nest, a
poor wounded beast, recovering Itself,
rising nnd continuing Its way; a peas
ant plowing and sowing a field that
has been ravaged by flood or hall, a
imtlou slowly repairing Its losses and
healing its wounds under whatever
guise of humanity or suffering it ap
pears to us, let us salute it When we
encounter It ill legends, In untutored
songs, In simple creeds, let us still sa
lulir It, for It Is always the same, Inde
structible, the immortal daughter of
God.
We do not dare hope enough. The
men of our day have developed strange
timidities. The apprehension that the
sky will fall that acme of absurdity
amoug the fears of our Gallic forefa
thers has entered - our own hearts.
Does the raindrop doubt the ocean,
the ray mistrust the sun? Our senile
wisdom has arrived at this prodigy. It
resembles those testy old pedagogues
whose chief office is to ruil at the mer
ry pranks or the youthful enthusiasms
ot their pupils. It Is time to become
little children once more, to learn
again to stand with clasped hands and
wide eyes before the mystery around
us; to remember that, In spite of our
knowledge, what we know Is but a
trille, and that the world is greater
than our mind, which is well, for, be
ing so prodigious, it must hold In re
serve untold resources, and we may
allow It some credit without accusing
ourselves of Improvidence. Let us not
treat It as creditors do an Insolvent
debtor; we should fire its courage, re
light the sacred flame of hope. Since
the sun still rises, since earth puts
forth her blossoms anew, since the bird
builds its nest and the mother smiles
at her child, let us have the courage to
be men and commit the rest to him
who has numbered the stars. For my
part I would 1 might find glowing
words to say to, whomsoever has lost
heart In tlieca times of disillusion:
Itonse your courage; hope on. He Is
sure of being least deluded who has the
daring to do that The most Ingenuous
hope Is nearer truth than the most ra
tional despair.
Another source of light on the path
of human llfo Is goodness. I am not of
those who believe in the natural per
fection of man and teach that society
corrupts him. On the contrary, of all
forms of evil the one which most dis
mays me Is heredity. But I sometimes
ask myself how it is that this effete
and deadly virus of low Instincts, of
vices inoculated in the blood, the whole
assemblage of disabilities Imposed up
on us by the past how all this has
not got the better of us. It must be
because of something else. This other
thing Is love.
CJtveu the unknown brooding above
our heads, our limited Intelligence, the
grievous and contradictory enigma of
unman destiny, fs.;.hood, hatred, eo
ruptlon, suffering, death what can we
think, what do? To all these questions
a sublime and mysterious voice has an-
Hwerou, i,ove your renow men. Love
must Indeed be divine, like faith and
nope, since sue cannot tile wnen so
many powers ore arrayed against her.
She has to combat the natural ferocity
of what may be called the beast In man.
Mie has to meet ruse, force, self inter
fst, above all, Ingratitude. How Is It
that she passes pure and scathless in
the midst of these dark enemies, like
t lie prophet of the sacred legend among
the roaring beasts? It Is because her
enemies nro of the earth and love tl
from above. Horns, teeth, claws, eyes
full of murderous lire, are powerless
against tho swift wing that soars to
ward the heights and eludes them.
Tims love escapes the undertakings of
her foes. She does even better she
has sometimes known the fine triumph
of winning over her persecutors. She
has seen the wild beasts grow calm,
lie down at her foot, obey her law.
At the very heart of the Christian
fallh, the most sublime of its teach
ings, and to hliu who penetrates its
deepest sense the most human, Is this:
To save lost humanity the invisible
(Jod came to dwell among us In the"
form of a man and willed to maks
himself known by this single sign
love, Healing, consoling, tender to the un
fortunate, even to the evil, love engen
ders light beneath her feet. She clari
fies, she simplifies. She has chosen the
humblest part- to bind up wounds,
wipe away tears, relieve distress,
soothe aching hearts, pardon, make
peace. Yet It Is of love that we have
the greatest need. And as we meditate
on the best way to render thought fruit
ful, simple, really conformable to our
destiny, the method sums Itself up In
these words; Have eontldenee and hope;
he kind. ,
I would not discourage lofty specula
tion, dissuade any one whomsoever
from brooding over the problems of the
unknown, over the vast abysses of sci
ence or philosophy; but we have al
wajs to come hack from these far Jour
neys to the point where we are, often
to n place where we seem to stand
marking time with no result. There
are condition of life and social com
plications in which the sage, the think
er and the Ignorant arc alike unable
to see clearly. The present age has
often brought us face to face with such
situations. I am sure that he who
meets them with our method will soon
recognize Us worth.
Since I have touched here upon reli
gious grouud, at least In a general way,
some one may ask me to say In a few
simulc words what religion is the best,
and 1 gladly express mysen on inn
subject. But it might be better not to
put the question In this form. All re
ligions have of necessity certain fixed
characteristics, and each has Its Inher
ent qualities or defects. Strictly speak
ing, then, they may be compared among
themselves. But there are always in
voluntary partialities or foregone con
clusions. It Is better to put the ques
tion otherwise and ask, la my own re
ligion good, and how may I know It?
To this question this answer: Your re
ligion la good If It is vital and active,
if it nourishes in you confidence, hope,
love and a sentiment of the infinite
value of existence; If It la allied with
what Is best In you against what is
worst and holds forever before you the
necessity of becoming a new man; if
It makes you understand that pain la a
deliverer; U it Increases your respect
for the conscience of others; If It ren
ders forgiveness more easy, fortune
less arrogant, duty more dear, the be
yond less visionary. If It doe these
things It la good, little matter its name.
However rudimentary It may be, when
It fill this office It oomes from the true
source; It binds you to man and to God.
But does it perchance serve to make
you think yourself better than others,
quibble over texts, wear sour looks,
domineer over others' consciences or
give your own over to bondage, stifle
your scruples, follow religious forms
for fashion or gain, do good In the hope
of escaping future punishment? oh,
then, If you proclaim yourself the'fol
lower of Buddha, Moses, Mohammed
or even Christ, your religion la worth
less; It separates you from God and
man.
I have not perhaps the right to speak
thua In my own name, but others have
to spoken before me who are greater
than I, and notably be who recounted
to the questioning scribe the parable
of the good Samaritan. I Intrench my
self behind bis authority.
