“The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful, it is mean and ugly. What can be more
base and unworthy than the pining, puling, mumping mood, no matter by what outward
ills it may have been engendered? What is more injurious to others? What less helpful
as a way out of the difficulty? It but fastens and perpetuates the trouble which
occasioned it, and increases the total evil of the situation. At all costs, then, we ought
to reduce the sway of that mood; we ought to scout it in ourselves and others, and
never show it tolerance.”
