LAD: May I please have some salad?
MAMA: (surprised) Sure…
DAD: (watching the Lad pick strawberries from the salad) Son, do you want to have peace in your soul?
LAD: (looking quizzically up with his snaggle-toothed smile) Yeah.
DAD: He that has peace in his soul will enjoy the whole salad.
Or, is it, he that enjoys the whole salad will have peace in his soul? The difference is that between the Stoic Sage (Sapiens) and the Christian Saint (Sanctus), I think.
But I don’t suppose that one is very far from the other.
Thanks, dear reader, should you ever find me, for falling to the salad with gusto.
