The Mistaken Idea of a Child's Joy and the

'childhood. We al
ways associate childhood with joy, and
'are apt to believe that any fairly well

I I think that childhood Is one of the
imost miserable times of life because In it
one has neither perspective nor phllo

There's nothing particularly hilarious

It is a gray fabric shot through with a

a garment ef It In which to clothe her
soul when she wanted to celebrate her
happiest time of life.
To some women the happiest hour of
life is when they first hold their new
born babea on their breast. That la
a minute of rapture, pure and complete,
that pays for all other disappointments
and Bufferings of existence. And there
are other golden hours that they spend
with their little children that are more
precious than they know until the time
has passed. But even this happiness Is
