Deep changes in character
from mercifulness to callousness
from fretfulness to cheerfulness
morals become fanatic or fantastic
morals become sentimental or authoritative

The problem of desire
the problem of intelligence
what a man foresees
he appraises highly
and he appraises at a lower rate
he dwells upon
and he slurs over
what he deems important
what he deems trivial
he can easily recalls
and he naturally forgets

Things sweet in anticipation
bitter in actual taste
likes and dislikes
perceptions are not alike
conflict and disharmony
attractions and disdains
the path of truth is narrow
the path of truth is straitened
