The wind fills it in through openings in the distant hills. It sweeps around the valley and whistles in the branches of the lean old trees.The world outside is full of unrest, of strife, of hard living, of noises. It grates and grinds on nerves, and the fine souls of men. Their tired voices rise tense and shrill on tired air. They drag their limbs in jerky haste, and their hands twitch ever nervously.There is not much rest in the world without. In the cities nature is distorted crudely to fit the fancy of these men - who ever running, reach the end of life gasping and out of breath. Their minds, turning like wheels grasp at rigid things, man-made. Their toes turn down the paths trodden by millions like them. Fainting souls fall by the way and those behind leap over and are speeding on. Banner-bearers press boldly to the front, wave their signals high above the seething crowd.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
