The author Robert Louis Stevenson had great difficulty with illness in his short life.  One day, his wife came into the room where he was coughing and said, “I suppose you will tell me that it’s a glorious day.”  Stevenson replied that’s precisely what he’d planned to say.  Seeing the sunlight stream through his bedroom window, he explained: “I refuse to let a row of medicine bottles be the circumference of my horizon.”

Talk is by far the most accessible of pleasures.  It costs nothing in money, it is all profit, it completes our education, founds and fosters friendships, and can be enjoyed at any age and in almost any state of health.
