I’m not mad, I’m frustrated,
I say. THEY BE TH' SAME THING Th' winsome lass insists,

“I believe that if, at th' end o' it all, accordin' t' our abilities, we have done somethin' t' make others a little happier, and somethin' t' make ourselves a little happier, that be about th' best we can do. T' make others less grog-filled be a crime. T' make ourselves unhappy be whar all crime starts. We must try t' contribute joy t' th' world. That be true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always be knowin' this, and be grog-filled I lived long enough t' come across it out.”
