Living is death dying is life On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that, citizens on this side, orphans on that, children on this side captives on that freemen on this side, disguised, unknown on that, disclosed and proclaimed as the sons of God.
By Labor the North has subdued Nature, changed a parsimonious soil to fertility, built dwellings for almost her whole population, raised the school-house, established the Church, encircled the globe with her ships, and made her books and her papers to be as blades of grass and as leave of the Summer for number. But in the South, labor, a badge of shame, is the father of misery. The slave labors, but with no cheerit is not the road to respectability, it will honor him with no citizens trust, it brings no bread to his family, no grain to his garner, no leisure in after-days, no books or papers to his children. It opens no school-house door, builds no church, rears for him no factory, lays no keel, fills no bank, earns no acres. With sweat and toil and ignorance he consumes his life, to pour the earnings into channels from which he does no drink, into hands that never honor him. But perpetually rob and often torment.
On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that, citizens on this side, orphans on that, children on this side, captives on that, free men.
Living is death dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens on this side orphans, on that children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they are going to catch you in next.
The dog was created specially for children. He is a god of frolic.
Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven.
