| "The best thing for being sad," replied Merlyn,
beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something.
That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow
old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake
at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you
may miss your only love, you may see the world about you
devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled
in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing
for it then - to learn. Learn why the world wags
and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind
can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by,
never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting."
