'Constance, Fielding repeated, weighing it deliberately. 'Constance no, I rather like it. 'Clarice shortens it to Connie. 'Does she indeed? Connie Constance. Fielding contrasted the two names, and again, 'Constance Connie. Mrs. Willoughby's mouth began to dimple at the corners. 'Although one laughs, she proceeded, 'it's really rather serious about Mr. Mallinson.

"To have the great poetic heart, Is more than all the climber's art." In some sense, we each felt the meaning of the lines, as we turned from Kearsarge top and made the gradual descent. There is a precipitous bridle-path which shortens the distance in proportion as it increases fatigue. The majority of us were unwilling to tempt fate by adopting it, and took the easier way.

The soul, feeling itself drawn so strongly and sweetly, desires to be always alone and in prayer, which gives rise to two evils the first, that in its seasons of greatest liberty it spends too much time in solitude; the second, that when its vigour of love is exhausted, as it often is in this way, it has not the same strength in times of dryness; it finds it difficult to remain so long in prayer; it readily shortens the time; its thoughts wander to exterior objects; then it is discouraged and cast down, thinking that all is lost, and does everything in its power to restore itself to the presence and favour of God.

It would be thought a hard government that should tax its people one-tenth part of their time, to be employed in its service; but idleness taxes many of use more; sloth, by bringing on diseases, absolutely shortens life. Sloth, like rust, consumes faster than labor wears; while, The used key is always bright, as poor Richard says.

True, that the English soldier can also shorten arms, but it takes both hands to do that, and in the meantime the whole body is exposed; while the Arab shortens his spear with the right-hand alone, and the left arm, with a round shield of hippopotamus hide upon it, can be used to put aside the bayonet thrust.

With hands held out and groping for the rails of the bedsteads, it is seeking its way. The orb of its belly distends and stretches its shirt like a crinoline, and shortens it.
