THE FRUITS ACCORDING TO THEIR SEASONS.  Every better future that is desired for mankind is necessarily in many respects also a worse future, for it is foolishness to suppose that a new, higher grade of humanity will combine in itself all the good points of former grades, and must produce, for instance, the highest form of art.  Rather has every season its own advantages and charms, which exclude those of the other seasons.  That which has grown out of religion and in its neighbourhood cannot grow again if this has been destroyed; at the most, straggling and belated off shoots may lead to deception on that point, like the occasional outbreaks of remembrance of the old art, a condition that probably betrays the feeling of loss and deprivation, but which is no proof of the power from which a new art might be born.
