Sympathy and Influence

Tired out by the continual noise of traffic I turned from one of London's busy thorough-fares into a quieter street. That day had seen me in one of the poorest neighborhoods in the East End, and my one thought was, "How can I make those around me see the meaning…

Sympathy as a Vice

We come to them who weep foolishly, and sit down and cry for company, instead of imparting to them truth and health in rough electric shocks, putting them once more in communication with the soul. —Emerson It is a curious idea of friendship that demands attention to personal ills for…

Sympathy

Soul is kindled only by soul.—Carlyle. There is among the heavenly hosts a bright and beautiful angel whose name is known to us as Sympathy. She is the handmaid of love, and she dwells in all that is true and best: in the souls of the charitable and the altruist,…
