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 ...

If a “ plain honest man ” feels himself disposed to condemn any conduct, he is apt
to think that all plain honest men must equally condemn it, if the circumstances of
the case were clearly brought before them ; hence it is his habit to express his
personal condemnation in the name of common sense: he does not habitually

whether chance gives them outstanding or mediocre leaders and on the
fluctuations ...

business. He even employed the same language. 'He that will not work shall not
eat,' he ...

'There's more to knighthood than a sword,' said Giles. 'There's dubbing and all
that, or so I understand. Anyway I've my own business to attend to.' 'Oh! but the
King would do the dubbing, I don't doubt, if he were asked,' said the miller. 'Let us
ask him, before it is too late!' 'Nay!' said Giles. 'Dubbing is not for my sort. I am a
farmer and proud of it: a plain honest man and honest men fare ill at court, they
say. It is more in your line, Master Miller.' The parson smiled: not at the farmer's
