"The Long Literalness of Life"

" The long literalness of life" is such that we have to embellish it as best we can. Provide a clothes-hanger on which to hold it together. Many of us, however, find comfort in the daily routines of bodily being.

Motives bear only slight or accidental relation to the worth of things we achieve. We may set out to accomplish something of note but finish-up as an inventor of pesky distractions.
