There is new strength, repose of mind, and inspiration in fresh apparel.
A weed is but an unloved flower.
Lean on thyself until thy strength is tried Then ask Gods help it will not be denied. Use thine own sight to see the way to go When darkness falls ask God the path to show. Think for thyself and reason out thy plan God has His work and thou hast thine. Exert thy will and use for self-control God gave thee jurisdiction of thy soul. All thine immortal powers bring into play Think, act, strive, reason, and look up and pray.
With care, and skill, and cunning art, She parried Time's malicious dart, And kept the years at bay, Till passion entered in her heart and aged her in a day!
With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays there let them sleep. Concern yourself with but today, Woo it, and teach it to obey Your will and wish. Since time began Today has been the friend of man But in his blindness and his sorrow, He looks to yesterday and tomorrow. You, and today a soul sublime, And the great pregnant hour of time, With God himself to bind the twain Go forth, I sayattain, attain With God himself to bind the twain.
The man who radiates good cheer, who makes life happier wherever he meets it, is always a man of vision and faith.
We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest, And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those who love us best.
