Winter, Alice Ames: Jewel Weed. V1. 23 Oct 2011

Alice Ames Winter (1865-1944) was a Wellesley College graduate, teacher, novelist, and popular public speaker. She was president of the first Woman's Club of Minneapolis and was active in the Unitarian church. Some of her publications include The Prize to the Hardy (1905), Jewel Weed (1906), and The Business of Being a Club Woman (1925).

Excerpt
In the mists of the infinite, events poise invisible, awaiting their opportunity to incarnate themselves. They fasten, each after his kind, on these human lives of ours, as germs find the culture soil they love; so it follows that to the commonplace comes a life of dull routine, foolish happenings seek out the sentimentalist, sordid events seek the sordid and on the mystic dawns the mysterious. Calamities wait there, too, until Fate points out a weak spot in character on which they may pounce relentless with the temptation that pierces it. As there are certain things that would scarcely dare to happen to certain people, so other greater events would hardly condescend to those whom they recognize as being their own inferiors.
