Example text

They would never create a kingdom of heaven without, would never ‘‘contribute to the reconstitution of society’’ (a phrase borrowed, somewhat reluctantly, from a, not, admirable Communist philosopher).

For this is creating a ‘‘kingdom of heaven’’ without. A ‘‘kingdom of heaven’’ within only, in this modern world at least (as Christ put it, the truth was perfect) a kingdom of heaven within only and not without is the good intention sans wisdom, sans labour, sans ‘‘agonizing’’ to create it without. To create a religiously high, true public opinion is, is it not? to create a ‘‘kingdom of heaven’’ without, that is, externally in this world. There was a young man once,58 rich in all the gifts of nature and of fortune or, as he said himself, with ‘‘means, time and inclination,’’ who was not satisfied with merely embellishing a happy home with good manners, with taking the world as it is, as the phrase runs.

But then this is so, that you cannot help thinking of yourself! All solicitude, repentance, every plan of self-improvement is in fact thinking of yourself and very poor creatures we should be if we had none of these things. (A disciple of one of the best of ‘‘saints’’ and founders said: ‘‘Do not go and put yourself in a doubtful situation when you are in a safe place. ’’) Neither is thought taken or advice given for this: conversation is not only for vanity or amusement, but for persuasion, for teaching, teaching sometimes in most important things.
