Q11. Many doctors flatly refused to believe Joseph when he announced that he had found a preventive against smallpox.

Some of the ‘vacca’ used by Joseph were not pure and some harms were done but when supplies of pure vaccine were available, the practice of vaccinating spread all over England and from England to other countries. We hardly hear of outbreaks of smallpox now.

Well, what is one to do? There are two solutions. One of them is the Nazi solution. If you don’t like people, kill them, banish them, and segregate them. The other way is much less thrilling, but it is on the whole the way of the democracies, and I prefer it. If you don’t like people, put up with them as well as you can. Don’t try to love them; you can’t, you’ll only strain yourself. But try to tolerate them.

Q15. Now-a-days we are amused by professionals. Why listen to your friends singing when you can hear the great singers of the world on the gramophone or the radio?
