NOBLENESS of character is nothing but steady love of good, and steady scorn of evil.
Let us do our work as well,
Both the unseen and the seen;
EACH hour has its lesson, and each life;
And if we miss our life we shall not find
Its lesson in another.
But duty, more than crown or palm,
Its own exceeding recompense.
The duties of home are a discipline for the ministries of heaven.
THE performance of a duty is never a useless office,
never be ashamed of doing right;
Do not look at life’s long sorrow,
See how small each moment’s pain;
God will help thee for to-morrow,
So each day begin again.
new beginnings are the life of perseverance.
YOU have a disagreeable duty to do at twelve o’clock.
Do not blacken nine and ten and all between with the colour of twelve.
