“A DAY OFF” said my Uncle Peter, settling down in his chair before the open wood-fire, with that air of complacent obstinacy which spreads over him when he is about to confess and expound... More > his philosophy of life, — “a day off is a day that a man takes to himself.” “You mean a day of luxurious solitude,” I said, “a stolen sweet of time, which he carries away into some hidden comer to enjoy alone, — a little-Jack Horner kind of a day?” “Not at all,” said my Uncle Peter; “solitude is a thing which a man hardly ever enjoys by himself.

But nine times out of ten he will find that he can’t get a really good day to himself unless he shares it with some one else; if he takes it alone, it will be a heavy day, a chain-and-ball day, — anything but a day off.”< Less

More > its own character and therefore its own charm. One is bright and friendly, with wooded hills around it, and silver beaches, and red berries of the rowan-tree fringing the shores. Another is sombre and lonely, set in a circle of dark firs and larches, with sighing, trembling reeds along the bank. Another is only a round bowl of crystal water, the colour of an aquamarine, transparent and joyful as the sudden smile on the face of a child. Another is surrounded by fire-scarred mountains, and steep cliffs frown above it, and the shores are rough with fallen fragments of rock; it seems as if the setting of this jewel had been marred and broken in battle, but the gem itself shines tranquilly amid the ruin, and the lichens paint the rocks, and the new woods spring bright green upon the mountains.< Less

More > Presbyterian General Assembly, May 21, 1903 and on Baccalaureate Sunday at Princeton University, June 7 of the same year. The central theme in these messages is that Jesus is the center of all truths and all other manifestations of divine light are radiations from this central point. van Dyke believes that perfection can only be achieved if man can align himself to this core truth.

The simple life which blandly ignores all care and conflict, soon becomes flabby and invertebrate, sentimental and gelatinous.< Less
