Such, Such Were The Joys by George Orwell

such, Such Were The Joys by George Orwell

loosely from the web of things and be the clue. The chief scenes get filled with erring heroes, guileful usurpers, persecuted discoverers, dying deliverers: everywhere the protagonist has a part pregnant with doom. And however unpractical it may be held to consider whether we have anything to print which it is good for the world to read, or which has not been better said before, it will perhaps be allowed to be worth considering what effect the printing. The companion usually allows for the bitterness of a disappointed man, and is secretly disinclined to believe that Grampus was to blame. It is notorious that a man may go on uttering false assertions about his own acts till he at last believes in them: is it not possible that sometimes in the very first utterance there may be a shade of creed-reciting belief, a reproduction. These anti-Judaic advocates usually belong to a party which has felt itself glorified in winning for Jews, as well as Dissenters and Catholics, the full privileges of citizenship, laying open to them every path to distinction.

Not for one moment would one willingly lose sight of the truth that the relation of the sexes and the primary ties of kinship are the deepest roots of human wellbeing, but to make them by themselves the equivalent of morality is verbally to cut. These characteristics are the very opposite of such as yield a fine imagination, which is always based on a keen vision, a keen consciousness of what _is and carries the store of definite knowledge as material for the construction of its inward visions. But my eyes at least have kept their early affectionate joy in our native landscape, which is one deep root of our national life and language. For his own part he was perfectly at ease about his system; but this is a world in which the truth requires defence, and specious falsehood must be met with exposure. It is possible to be too arrogant about our blood or our calling, but that arrogance is virtue compared with such mean pretence. He is angry and equips himself accordingly-with a penknife to give the offender a _comprachico_ countenance, a mirror to show him the effect, and a pair of nailed boots to give him his dismissal. The depths of middle-aged gentlemen's ignorance will never be known, for want of public examinations in this branch. The same motives, the same ideas, the same practices, are alternately admired and abhorred, lauded and denounced, according to their association with superficial differences, historical or actually social: even learned writers treating of great subjects often show an attitude of mind not greatly superior. Let us refuse to accept as moral any political leader who should allow his conduct in relation to great issues to be determined by egoistic passion, and boldly say that he would be less immoral even though he were as lax in his personal habits. High imagination is often assigned or claimed as if it were a ready activity in fabricating extravagances such as are presented by fevered dreams, or as if its possessors were in that state of inability to give credible testimony which would warrant their exclusion from. I wish that this narrow use of words which are wanted in their full meaning were confined to women like Melissa. We soak our children in habits of contempt and exultant gibing, and yet are confident that-as Clarissa one day said to me-"We can always teach them to be reverent in the right place, you know." And doubtless if she were to take her boys.
