To be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars . . .
To covet nothing that is your neighbour’s except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners ~
To think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ ;
And to spend as much time as you can, with body and with spirit, in God’s out-of-doors ~
These are little guideposts on the footpath to peace ~
Henry Van Dyke (author,educator,clergyman,1852-1933)
