HERESY
. ' trailing voice:
"'You know that ' >-, older than Cronus, and miglitier too. -Do
you feel this silent about us? Eros! -Do yeu hear how the cricket
is chirping? Eros!' 1! Ks otisment two lizards, chasing each other, darted
like a flash across him as ie lay there. lie repeated, 'Eros, Eros!' And as
if he had given the command for it., two strong bucks now arose and at-
tacked each other with their curved horns. lie let them go, although the
combat grew more and usere heated. The clash of the blows rang louder,
and their number kept increasing. And again he said, 'Eros, Eros!'
"And now there came to the ears of the visitor, for the first time, words
that made him particularly attentive, because they shed or at least seemed
to shed some light on the question as to why Ludovico was called the
Heretic by the people. 'I had rather,' he said, 'worship a live he-goat or a
live bull tian a hanged man on a gallows. I do not live in an aye that does
that. I hate, I abhor it. Jupitor Amincn was represented with ram's horns.
tan has the legs of a goat, Bacchus the horns of a bull, I mean the Bacchus
Tauriformis or Tauricornis of the Romans. Miithra. the sun-god, is repre-
sented as a bull. All peoples used to revere the bull, the he-goat, the ram.
and to shed their sacred blood in sacrifices. That I can understand--for
the procreative power is the creative power, procreation and creation are
the same thing. To be sure, the cult of that power is no cool whimpering of'
monks and nuns. Onc I dreamt of Sita, the wife of Vishnu, who assumed
human fers under the name of Rama. The priests died in her embrace.
Then 1 knew for a moment somethin.g of all sorts of mysteries. Of the
mystery of the black procreation in the green grass; of lust, colored mother
of pearl; of ecstasies and torpors; of the secret of the yellow maize-kernels;
of all fruits, all swelling?, all colours of every kind. I could have bellowed'
in a frenzy of pain when I cauebt sight of the pitiless, all powerful Sita. I
thought I should die of desite.'"
From "The itretic of Soana," by Gerhart ltauptmann.
WHY ARE WE SAD?
"I have already referred to my old illustrated Bible, and to the terres-
trial paradise which I admired in my wise and tender childhood, * The
fields. beautifully drained, were divided by lines of old willows. The tree
ci knowledge wa:= a mossy apple-tree.
"This delighted me. But I could not understand why God had for- t
bidden the good Flemish Eve to taste the fruit of the tree which gare under-
standing. I know new, and I am near believing that the God of my old
Bible was right. That good old man, fond of gardens, doubtless said to'
himself: 'knowledge does not bring happiness, and when men know a lota
cif history asnd geography they will become sad.' Ie was right. If, by any
chance he is still alive, he must congratulate himself on his prescience. We
have eaten of the fruits of the tree of knowledge, and the taste of ashes
is left in our mouths. * * What have we done? We have tried to estimate
the immemorial age of the earth, even the age cf the sun, and we now {
reckon human life by comparison with geological periods and cosmic ages;
and by this standard it is ridiculcusly short. Drowned in the ocean of time
and apace, we have realised that we are nothing, and this has dopressed
us, In our pride we have sought to keep silence, but we have blenched.
The greatest evil-and undoubtedly the old gardener with the long whitef
beard in my Bible had foreseen' it-is that faith has disa.ppeared with our1
happy Ignorance.
"We have ns longer any hopea, and we no longer believe in the things
that used to console our forefathers. This is the moot painful thing of all.
.t was pleasant to believe, even in bell."
From "Why Are We Sad" in "On Life and Letters; Third Seris,"
by Anatole Prance.
THE CELESTIAL VIRGI h
.Together with faith and hope we have lost aharity; the three.
virtues which, Like three vessels bearing at the prow the image of a celes-
ital virgin, carrying poor souts across the world's ocean, have foundered
in the same storm."
From "Why Are We Sad" by Anatole France.
APPLES
"Four aples mark lbe four great epochs of human history--the'apple t
of Eve 'the Biblical epoch); the apple of Paris (the Hellenic epoch); the
apple of Tell (the mediateval eaoch); the apple of Newton (the scientific
epoch)."
Prom "Testimaniianae," us' Giovanni Papinl.
TO TIE SENMOBS
When Jews Christ said, "Bled are they thad hunger, for they shall
be fittedi" Jeias Christ was gambling on probabilitiets.
