Dec. 14 & 15, 1913

Sun. December 14, 1913

I’m going to fill this page with little quotations I like.

“The world is wide  In time and tide  And god is guide;

Then do not hurry.

That man is blest Who does his best  And leaves the rest;

Then do not worry.”

            by C.F. Deems

“Don’t do anything till you do it, and then when you have done it, stop doing it.” Gillette

“The men the world calls lucky will tell you, everyone, that success comes not by wishing but by had work bravely done.” Anom.

“One makes one’s own happiness only by taking care of the happiness of others.”   Saint Pierre

Mon. December 15, 1913

“Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours

For one lone soul another lonely soul,

Each choosing each through all the weary hours,

And meeting strangely at one sudden goal,

Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers,

Into one beautiful and perfect whole;

And life’s long night is ended, and the way

Lies open onward to eternal day”

                        Edwin Arnold

“Then read from the treasured volume

The poem of they choice,

And lend to the rhyme of the poet

The beauty of thy voice.

And the night shall be filled with

And the cares that infest the day

Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,

And so silently steal away.”
