A Quote by Bernard de Voto on generosity, kindness, life, men, men and women, vision, water, and women

The water of life was given to us to make us see for a while that we are more nearly men and women, more nearly kind and gentle and generous, pleasanter and stronger than without its vision there is any evidence we are.
