A French writer (Chamfort) says, "General maxims are in the con36 duct of life, what routine is in cer21 tain arts. Situations in each con9 stantly arise, which require something beyond them." A maxim is worth nothing, unless it be applied 54 to the peculiar circumstances in 49 which a man finds himself placed. But the general principles of morals, as the routine of an art, are not therefore to be despised, because their application is not immediately seen



The best maxims appear to be 23 those which possess something of the homely sense of the proverb, with 16 the refinement of a philosophical S truth.
