GREETING

This book is for those who in treading the garden path have no thought of material gain; rather must they
give,\ue000from the pocket as they may,\ue001from the brain much,\ue002and from the heart all,\ue003if they would drink in
full measure this pure joy of living.

"Allons! the road is before us!
It is safe\ue004I have tried it\ue005my own feet
have tried it well\ue006be not detained."

Walt Whitman.
