What your hand finds to do, do it with might, for there is no work or dance in the grave. Can’t work with might in fussy feverishness. Should be calm as a star or a gl. Look at the stars, keep cool. Keep yourself well in hand, in health. Can’t work in fever. No fever more demoralizing than gold fever. The long winters, the darkness, the flinty frozen ground like a cool strong hand on the head of a sick child will soothe and calm. Nature’s voice, peace, be still.
