THE KINGDOM OF GOD

of my heroes I was struck by the predominance in my books of the theme of Reconciliation. Colonel Bramble was an effort to make the French understand the English soul, the English the French soul; Bernard Quesnay was an effort to show that good faith is to be found on the employers' side as well as on that of the workers; Climats was an effort to present -fairly the woman's point of view and the man's point of view in a marriage; La Cercle de Famille was an effort to reconcile the generations. Always I have believed that words rather than facts pit men against one another and that in silence or in action understanding becomes easier. Even to-day in this chaos in which a civilization is dying I search anxiously for opportunities of conciliation, and frequent failures have not killed in me the persistent and perhaps absurd hope of seeing love triumph over hate.
Lack of realism? Not entirely, for love is a reality. But no one can bring it about that men shall be devoid of passions. The problem is to have them live under such institutions that these passions themselves will unite and reinforce society. I do not think this is impossible. More than once in the course of history a happy equilibrium has obtained. Never doubt that after this war a new equilibrium will be found. For a decade or a century it will seem stable. Then once more the fragile edifice will begin to tremble. `What are the best lawsi' Solon was asked. `For what people and at what periodi' he replied. Nations, like individuals, through all their lives ascend a steep slope, flanked by precipices, on which they are never permitted to rest. Each minute is a departure, each day a battle. Life is a game from which no one can withdraw with his winnings at any time.

News of the world still comes to me in my tower. A young man asks to see me. He has arrived from Elbeuf and shows me little photographs in which one can see, reduced to powder, the houses that were the setting of my first years and the ruin of the fine quays of Rouen that I used to admire each morning with never-failing pleasure as I crossed the Boieldieu Bridge. I question him and discover he is the great nephew of the fire chief with the copper helmet and the red plume who is my earliest memory.
`And what became of the Captaine'
`I only knew him,' he says, `as an old family legend ... His son, my uncle, became a Colonel and died several years ago.'
