TO humbleness of heart descends
This prescience from on high,
The faith that elevates the just,
Before and when they die;
And makes each soul a separate heaven,
A court for Deity.
William Wordsworth


IF thy Vessel be but small in the Ocean of this World, if Meanness of Possessions be thy allotment upon Earth, forget not those Virtues which the great Disposer of all bids thee to entertain from thy Quality and Condition, that is Submission, Humility, Content of Mind, and Industry. Content may dwell in all Stations. To be low, but above contempt, may be high enough to be Happy.
Sir Thomas Browne


DO not despise your situation; in it you must act, suffer, and conquer. From every point on earth we are equally near to heaven and to the infinite.
Henri F. Amiel
