Page 36 - The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
Page 17 - WORD |H, a word is a gem, or a stone, or a song, Or a flame, or a two-edged sword ; Or a rose in bloom, or a sweet perfume, Or a drop of gall, is a word. You may choose your word like a connoisseur, And polish it up with art, But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays, Is the word that comes from the heart. You may work on your word a thousand weeks, But it will not glow like one That all unsought, leaps forth white hot, When the fountains of feeling run. You may hammer away on the anvil of thought,...
Page 22 - Upon the wreckage of thy yesterday Design thy structure of to-morrow. Lay Strong corner-stones of purpose, and prepare Great blocks of wisdom cut from past despair. Shape mighty pillars of resolve, to set Deep in the tear-wet mortar of regret. Work on with patience. Though thy toil be slow, Yet day by day the edifice shall grow. Believe in God — in thine own self believe. All that thou hast desired thou shalt achieve.

Page 27 - Give words of comfort, of defence, and hope, To mortals crushed by sorrow and by error. And though thy feet through shadowy paths may grope, Thou shalt not walk in loneliness or terror. Give of thy gold, though small thy portion be. Gold rusts and shrivels in the hand that keeps it. It grows in one that opens wide and free. Who sows his harvest is the one who reaps it. Give of thy love, nor wait to know the worth Of what thou lovest ; and ask no returning. And wheresoe'er thy pathway leads on earth,...
Page 38 - HO climbs the mountain does not always climb. The winding road slants downward many a time ; Yet each descent is higher than the last. Has thy path fallen? That will soon be past. Beyond the curve the way leads up and on. Think not thy goal forever lost or gone. Keep moving forward; if thine aim is right Thou canst not miss the shining mountain height. Who would attain to summits still and fair, Must nerve himself through valleys of despair. 38 "There Is No Death, There Are No Dead.
Page 30 - EAE is the twin of Faith's sworn foe, Distrust. If one breaks in your heart the other must. Fear is the open enemy of Good. It means the God in man misunderstood. Who walks with Fear adown life's road will meet His boon companions, Failure and Defeat. But look the bully boldly in the eyes, With mien undaunted, and he turns and flies.
Page 11 - WEED is but an unloved flower! Go dig, and prune, and guide, and wait, Until it learns its high estate, And glorifies some bower. A weed is but an unloved flower ! All sin is virtue unevolved, Release the angel from the clod— Go love thy brother up to God.
