  Delicate omens traced in air To the lone bard true witness bare;Birds with auguries on their wings Chanted undeceiving things Him to beckon,him to warn;Well might then the poet scorn To learn of scribe or courier Hints writ in vaster character;And on his mind,at dawn of day,Soft shadows of the evening lay.
  For the prevision is allied Unto the thing so signified;Or say,the foresight that awaits Is the same Genius that creates.
  FATE.
  It chanced during one winter,a few years ago,that our cities were bent on discussing the theory of the Age.By an odd coincidence,four or five noted men were each reading a discourse to the citizens of Boston or New York,on the Spirit of the Times.It so happened that the subject had the same prominence in some remarkable pamphlets and journals issued in London in the same season.To me,however,the question of the times resolved itself into a practical question of the conduct of life.How shall I live?We are incompetent to solve the times.Our geometry cannot span the huge orbits of the prevailing ideas,behold their return,and reconcile their opposition.We can only obey our own polarity.’Tis fine for us to speculate and elect our course,if we must accept an irresistible dictation.
  In our first steps to gain our wishes,we come upon immovable limitations.We are fired with the hope to reform men.After many experiments,we find that we must begin earlier,—at school.But the boys and girls are not docile;we can make nothing of them.We decide that they are not of good stock.We must begin our reform earlier still,—at generation:that is to say,there is Fate,or laws of the world.
