                                       [b]CHAPTER I[/b]

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some
advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.
“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just
remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that
you’ve had.”
He didn’t say any more, but we’ve always been unusually
communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great
deal more than that. In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments,
a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me
the victim of not a few veteran bores. The abnormal mind is quick to detect
and attach itself to this quality when it appears in a normal person, and so it
came about that in college I was unjustly accused of being a politician,
because I was privy to the secret grief’s of wild, unknown men. Most of the
confidences were unsought—frequently I have feigned sleep,
preoccupation, or a hostile levity when I realized by some unmistakable
sign that an intimate revelation was quivering on the horizon; for the
intimate revelations of young men, or at least the terms in which they
express them, are usually plagiaristic and marred by obvious suppressions.
Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope. I am still a little afraid of
missing something if I forget that, as my father snobbishly suggested, and I
snobbishly repeat, a sense of the fundamental decencies is parceled out
unequally at birth.
