Doing the Disagreeable

From the January 17, 1901 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Naturalists say that, when examined minutely with a microscope, it will be found that no creature or object in nature is positively ugly, that there is a certain harmony or symmetry of parts that renders the whole agreeable rather than the reverse. So the most disagreeable tasks in life, when viewed in their proper proportions, reveal a poetic, an attractive side, hitherto undreamed of.
