Page 33 - We can never be too careful What the seed our hands shall sow; Love from love is sure to ripen, Hate from hate is sure to grow. Seeds of good or ill we scatter Heedlessly along our way ; But a glad or grievous fruitage Waits us at the harvest day.
Page 11 - MY MOTHER. I MUST not tease my mother, For she is very kind, And everything she says to me I must directly mind ; For when I was a baby, And could not speak or walk, She let me in her bosom sleep, And taught me how to talk. I must not tease my mother ; And when she likes to read, Or has the headache, I will step Most silently indeed.
Page 14 - TIS a lovely thing for youth To walk betimes in wisdom's way ; To fear a lie, to speak the truth, That we may trust to all they say! But liars we can never trust, Though they should speak the thing that's true ; And he that does one fault at first, And lies to hide it, makes it two.
