THE DEGREE OF MORAL INFLAMMABILITY UNKNOWN.  According to whether we have or have not had certain disturbing views and impressions for instance, an unjustly executed, killed, or martyred father; a faithless wife; a cruel hostile attack it depends whether our passions reach fever heat and influence our whole life or not.  No one knows to what he may be driven by circumstances, pity, or indignation; he does not know the degree of his own inflammability.  Miserable little circumstances make us miserable; it is generally not the quantity of experiences, but their quality, on which lower and higher man depends, in good and evil.
