"The modern world has far too little understanding of the art of keeping young. Its notion of progress has been to pile one thing on top of the another, without caring if each thing was crashed in turn.

People forgot that the human soul can enjoy a thing most when there is time to think about it and be thanful for it. And by crowding things together they lost the sence of surprise; and surprise is the secret of joy."

G. K. CHESTERTON 1874-1936
