Men are born with a helpless lamenting cry; they should die with a smile of joy. That is the purpose of years in between. But, those years are wasted now. God, who is the anchor, which will save man from stress and storm, is neglected and ignored. Man is tossed about from one want to another, one grief to another, until he is blinded by despair and exhausted by foiled pursuits. Most illnesses are due to this despair and this exhaustion.
