From the June 1965 magazine.

Carrying the Message


The other night I got to thinking about resentments, and the way they can upset my whole applecart. There are periods when everybody says the wrong thing, and I find myself becoming more and more bitter. It is at this time I must stand still and start taking a bit of my own inventory. Really, everyone can't be this bad!

I then must look within myself and see just what it is that is bothering me. If I'm honest enough, I recognize some resentment (or series of small resentments), which I've failed to admit exist. And through failing to do this, I have reached out to the other guy and found every fault in the book with his inventory!
