In Times Like These

The world is too big for us, too much going on, too many crimes,
too much violence and excitement. Try as you will, you get
behind in the race, in spite of yourself It’s an incessant
strain, to keep pace… and still, you lose ground.

Science empties its discoveries on you so fast that you stagger
beneath them in hopeless bewilderment. The political world is
news seen so rapidly, you’re out of breath trying to keep pace
with who’s in and who’s out. Everything is high pressure.
Human nature can’t endure much more!

~Atlantic Journal, June 16, 1833~

In times like these, it is helpful to remember that there have
always been times like these”
