Stran 69 - I gave a beggar from my little store Of well-earned gold. He spent the shining ore And came again, and yet again, still cold And hungry as before. I gave a thought, and through that thought of mine, He found himself a man, supreme, divine, Bold, clothed, and crowned with blessings manifold, And now he begs no more.
Stran 126 - No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean, Are the people who lift, and the people who lean. Wherever you go, you will find the earth's masses, Are always divided in just these two classes.
Stran 126 - There are two kinds of people on earth today — Just two kinds of people, no more, I say. Not the sinner and saint, for 'tis well understood The good are half bad and the bad are half good. Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man's wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health; Not the...
Stran 76 - With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun.
Stran 18 - Talk Happiness. The world is sad enough Without your woes. No path is wholly rough. Look for the places that are smooth and clear, And speak of those to rest the weary ear Of earth, so hurt by one continuous strain Of human discontent and grief and pain.
Stran 134 - You never can tell what your thoughts will do, In bringing you hate or love; For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swifter than carrier doves.

Stran 118 - environment," But spirit scorns it, and is free. It masters time, it conquers space; It cows that boastful trickster, Chance, And bids the tyrant Circumstance Uncrown, and fill a servant's place. The human Will, that force unseen, The offspring of a deathless Soul, Can hew a way to any goal, Though walls of granite intervene. Be not impatient in delay, But wait as one who understands; When spirit rises and commands, The gods are ready to obey.
Stran 126 - I mean Are the people who lift and the people who lean. Wherever you go you will find the world's masses Are always divided in just these two classes; And oddly enough you will find, too, I ween — There is only one lifter to twenty who lean.
Stran 126 - Not the sinner and saint, for 'tis well understood The good are half bad, and the bad are half good. Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man's wealth, You must first know the state of his conscience and health. Not the humble and proud, for in life's little span, Who puts on vain airs is not counted a man.
