I was once driven upon an Irish jaunting-car with a little child of four years of age. It began to rain, and a hood was placed over the child's head. I heard her mutter, "That is such a pretty view."

A good illustration of people who cannot see farther than the extremity of their own beautiful selves.
(J. Alexander, D. D.)
