OTO be up and doing. O
Unfearing and unshamed to go
In all the uproar and the press
About my human business!
My undissuaded heart I hear
Whisper courage in my ear.
With voiceless calls the ancient earth
Summons me to a daily birth.
Robert Louis Stevenson
THE best prayer at the beginning of a day is that we may not lose its moments.
LET the weakest, let the humblest remember, that in his daily course he can, if he will, shed around him almost a heaven. Kindly words, sympathizing attentions, watchfulness against wounding men’s sensitiveness — these cost very little, but they are priceless in their value. Are they not almost the staple of our daily happiness? From hour to hour, from moment to moment, we are supported, blest, by small kindnesses.
Frederick W. Robertson
THE great business of life is to be, to do, to do without, and to depart.
