ABANDON, CHASTITY, AND LIFE'S CURVE

"Chastity is by no means the necessary companion of intelIigence and
t it is perhaps one of intelligence's least equivocal friends. The principal
easure of that sate being the total absence of sentimentalism, a state upon

Thaps that alone makes its ugliness."

"A spring there is whose silver waters show,
Clear as glass, the shining sands below:
Aflowery lotus spreads its arms above,
Shades all the banks-and seems itself a grove;
Eternal greens the mossy margingrace,
Watched hy the sylvan genius oif the pace:
Hers as I ladand'sweled with tears, the flood,
Before my sight'a watery virgin stood:
She stood and cried,-'O you that love in vain,
Fly hence and seek the fair Leucadian main:
There stands a rock whose inending steep
Apollo's fane surveys the rolling deep;
There injured lovers, leaping from above,
TheirAames extiiguished and forget to love.
Deucalian once with hopeless fury burned;
In vain he loved, relentless Pyrrha scorned.
But when from hence he plunged into the main,
Deucalian scorned, and Pyrrah loved in vain."
