The worst time in any writer's life is the two months before publication. All writers become mental and pathetic, even those of devout faith, who have some psychological healing to lean up against, and gorgeous lives. All writers think that this time, the jig is up, and they will be exposed as frauds.
The department of peace would take a more human approach to healing our society, looking not merely for ways we can destroy an enemy, but for more powerful ways to create new friends. while the state department engages in international diplomacy, there is no domestic parallel. there is no department seeking to harness the power of a nonviolent heart.
The action of pity leaps quicker than light from the highest place to the lowest to bring healing and joy, whatever the cost to itself. it changes darkness into light and evil into good. but it will not, at the cunning tears of hell, impose on good the tyranny of evil. every disease that submits to a cure shall be cured: but we will not call blue yellow to please those who insist on having jaundice, nor make a midden of the world's garden for the sake of some who cannot abide the smell of roses.
