UNIVERSITY OP PENNSYLVANIA NEW YORK HENRY HOLT AND COMPANY COPYRIGHT, 1925, BY HENRY HOLT AND COMPANY PRINTED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO THE MEMORY OF MY OLD MASTER GEORGE STUART FULLERTON FOREWORD To OLD STUDENTS OF MINE. There is little in the past our philosophy goes regretting j but if one thing more than others, it is the leisure of the Garden. One says Garden out of habit, for the beauty of the image j Street or Porch it might have been, or just Academy the thing is not the landscape, but those quiet stately figures walking, talking at their leisure.

Conversing that is it, discussing with each other. Their leisure was not idle, but argu ment unhurried. And what argument there was about it and about the best of our science we owe to that debate. Well, things are changed, and not all for the better.

Hundreds of silent eyes greet the mastef of this day, as stepping on his platform he unfolds his lecture then, of tongues not a one. It would be indecent a Course must be rounded let the artist have his way The students of our colleges are vi FOREWORD hopelessly polite to Professors always busy, always busy. . . . Let me tell you, O Old Students, its no fun to be so busy. And that is why, when from time to time you have asked for a talk on what you will, I have willed it to be idle, and chat of idle things.

You seemed not to mind it, but laughed with or at me I care not which. These were your occasions 5 we were fellow-students, playfellows if you please. Leisure there was for once to round out nothing, to say things somewhat doubtful, to try untrodden ways. For time was there for come-backs, once more we could debate it as in the ancient dayswhen thought experimented tried-on ideas. Of the wisdom of these occasions, some fragments are before you, all properly en titled Fools Advice.

And in bringing them together you are free to grumble tis such advice he followed. Let it be. But the years the locust which eateth all our years hath eaten perchance these fragments may restore them to you. They brought them back to me. University of Pennsylvania, 1925. E. A. S.
