They will necessarily be unfitted for domestic management, and disqualified for the sober realities of life. If the matrimonial connexion be founded upon no better pretensions, and no superior reasons for attachment, it is incapable of securing solid happiness. It is, in fact, at the mercy of every breeze.

That same evening I was fortunate in being helped to forget the realities of war by two experiences.

For she was even less educated than Milly, and naturally less quick. But having touched realities all her life, she had achieved an abiding sense of fact that Milly was now totally incapable of acquiring. Her philosophy was simple, but it embraced the woman question, suffrage, and the man-made world.

To Watts, the serious man of fifty years, Love and Death, Faith and Hope, Aspiration, Suffering, and Remorse, were not, as to the eighteenth-century rhymester, merely Greek ladies draped in flowing raiment; to him they were realities, intensely focussed in himself.

There was but one place the dismal hollow itself, the scene of his heart's tragedy where his acknowledgment to God should stand; his mute "Thy will be done!"

"Of course not," I answered. "It interested me, that was all." And the woman went out, closing the door behind her. So here was the explanation, if I chose to accept it.
