Loss of Dignity

Meditation has lost all its dignity of form; the ceremonial and solemn bearing of the meditative person have been made a mockery, and one would no longer endure a wise man of the old style. We think too hastily and on the way and while walking and in the midst of business of all kinds, even when we think on the most serious matters; we require little preparation, and even quiet:–it is as if each of us carried about an unceasingly revolving machine in his head, which still works, even under the most unfavorable circumstances.”
