I would that the loving were loved, and
I would that the weary should sleep,
And that man should hearken to man,
And that he that soweth would reap.
He that is down needs fear no fall;
He that is low, no pride;
He that is humble ever shall
Have God to be his guide.
I am content with what I have,
Little be it or much;
And, Lord, contentment still I crave,
Because Thou savest such.
Fullness to such a burden is
That go on pilgrimage;
Here little, and hereafter bliss,
Is best from age to age.
A little explained, a little endured,
A little forgiven, the quarrel is cured.
C. H. Spurgeon
We must not judge of our worth by our talents, but by the use we make of them.
We cannot always choose our road in life, but we can choose whether we walk along the shady or sunny side of it.
Nothing is easier than fault-finding, no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character are required to set up in the grumbling business.
A Daily Prayer
Oh God keep me on the path of achieving happiness and success that are real,
Keep my vision always clear to see the goals,
Help me to tap the hidden powers within and above me,
Give me strength to work with all the energies of mind and body,
Help me to practise the love of people and service to others,
Keep me for ever with a smile on my face for the whole human race.
