It is easy for an ordinary person to say what is good or bad, just or unjust; it is very difficult for a wise man. Everyone, according to his outlook on life, turns things from bad to good and from good to bad, because everyone has his own grade of evolution and he reasons according to that. Sometimes one thing is subtler than others, and then it is difficult for him to judge. There was a time when Wagner's music was not understood, and another time when he was considered the greatest of musicians. Sometimes things are good in themselves, but our own evolution makes them seem not so good to us. What one considered good a few years ago, may not seem good at a later evolution. A child appreciates a doll most, later he will prefer the work of great sculptors.
