And inasmuch as it has this effect, it is one of the most dangerous of all tempers
which a Christian can possess : be-1 cause it is this very tendency which often
makes plain honest men so lamentably unspiritual. Shew to such ajemper the
direct, immediate, worldly benefit to follow this or that measure, and it will set
about the work cheerfully. Tell it of an advantage that is likely to arise, but not until
hereafter; or not perceptibly, but only like the seed that really doe* grow up,
though no man ...

How proud a thing for this young nation, if, from the start, she sends out the
reputation that eschews all this; that the _ simple instincts of morality, the plain
dictates of honesty and honor, should be the rule of our governmental polity at
home and abroad ... power, and we shall have a government here, the reflex of a
pure, honest, healthful public sentiment, manifesting, in the arena of political life,
the rigid honesty and the simple purity which characterize the dealings of plain,

They were plain, honest men. What enabled me, who am not a plain honest man,
to adopt their working methods was my belief in chance. Because I do not believe
in the laws of history and still less in political ideologies, I am able to watch the
play of chance with a cold eye, to observe its chaotic workings without drawing
conclusions. Which factions win or lose the struggle for the world will depend on
whether chance gives them outstanding or mediocre leaders and on the
