A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy.
As regards the celebrated struggle for life, it seems to me for the present to have been rather asserted than proved.
