It takes your enemy and your friend, working together,to hurt you to
the heart; the one to slander you and the other to get the news to you.
It is human nature to take delight in exciting admiration. It is what
prompts children to say "smart" things, and do absurd ones,
and in other ways "show off" when company is present. It is
what makes gossips turn out in rain and storm to be the first to tell
a startling bit of news.
