The especial genius of women I believe to be electrical in movement, intuitive in function, spiritual in tendency.
We do not place especial value on the possession of a virtue until we notice its total absence in our opponent.
So in all these little ways we spin a web, a cocoon, around ourselves.
The cocoon becomes nice and snug and comfortable because it is very familiar. We know every little corner of our life; we can even write poetry about it. We may also have ideas about the great mystery which religions speak of, which gives our cocoon an especial sense of security: we can worship the great mystery outside of it and feel good about that. The cocoon is safe, bounded, claustrophobic, and a little stale. We settle into it and live our lives.
My appeal to the rich is, Deal liberally with your poor brethren, and use your means to advance the cause of God. The worthy poor, who are made poor by misfortune and sickness, deserve your especial care and help.
