Relaxation is a physical and moral necessity; animals, even to the simplest and dullest, have their pastimes, their sports, their diversions. The toil-worn artisan, stooping and straining over his daily task, which taxes eye and brain and limb, ought to have opportunity and means for an hour or two of relaxation after that task is concluded.
HORACE GREELEY, attributed, Day's Collacon
Apathy. A sort of living oblivion.
