A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

wish to look up and to be in an agony lest he should depart before I could do so, and to put my ear close to him and to listen, half-asleep, half-awake, my hair on end, my eyes full of joyful tears, my mind swelling with an unburdensome load. What human words could describe it ? The initiated know and can declare it.

The Saviour, the god who guides and orders all, the Saviour of all that is, the guardian of the immortals, the helmsman at the tiller who preserves all that is 'or that comes to be.

O much and often, in days and nights, in private and public by me invoked, my lord Asclepius, how welcome, how deeply longed for was your gift-to reach after profound seas of depression a harbour of calm and to salute the hearth where all men are at home ! Every man under the sun is admitted to its rites, yet may I maintain that till to-day no Greek has enjoyed them as I.

I have come so far in the faith that Another will provide, that I speak I scarce know how. He that commands is greater to me than any preparation.

Asclepius bids me speak : so I must not take my bodily weakness into account in comparison with the Saviour himself, nor fear the vastness of the subject.

If you consider and count the nature and the number of my experiences and note how they were governed by a compelling power, and how the god brought me to seas and rivers and wells, and how he ordered me to fight with storms, you will declare my story to be indeed beyond any miracle, and will see in fuller measure the power and providence of the god, and will rejoice with me in the honour which was shown me, rather than grieve with me for my infirmity.
