Previous Section   219. UNABLE TO SETTLE   Next Section

Unable to Settle.  One likes to live in a small town.  But from time to time just this small town drives us out into bare and lonely Nature, especially when we think we know it too well.  Finally, in order to refresh ourselves from Nature, we go to the big town.  A few draughts from this cup and we see its dregs, and the circle begins afresh, with the small town as starting point.  So the moderns live; they are in all things rather too thorough to be able to settle like the men of other days.
