The Freezing-Point of the Will.  "Some time the hour will come at last, the hour that will envelop you in the golden cloud of painlessness; when the soul enjoys its own weariness and, happy in patient playing with patience, resembles the waves of a lake, which on a quiet summer day, in the reflection of a many-hued evening sky, sip and sip at the shore and again are hushed — without end, without purpose, without satiety, without need — all calm rejoicing in change, all ebb and flow of Nature's pulse”.  Such is the feeling and talk of all invalids, but if they attain that hour, a brief period of enjoyment is followed by ennui.  But this is the thawing wind of the frozen will, which awakes, stirs, and once more begets desire upon desire.  Desire is a sign of convalescence or recovery.
