Deafness and Cheerfulness (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Deafness and Cheerfulness I may not have followed, I am sure I have seen, and can trust myself to point out, the way of wisdom in dealing with it. For a very great number of the incurably deaf the chief help is in a large sense moral, and with this I would reach them. I shall indulge little in pity, - that I reserve for children, not proffer men; but I shall appeal to cour age and faith and fortitude. The experience of the deaf is hard, far harder than any but a fellow-sufferer can know; I would bear in upon them the thought once borne in upon me by a beloved physician: This is bad, very had indeed, and not unlikely it will become worse; but has the thought occurred to you that it is a very poor bushel under which to hide your candle?
