Remember that life Is neither pain
nor pleasure; it Is serious business, to
be entered upon with courage and in
a spirit of self-sacrlflce. De Tocque
ville. No true man can live a half life
when he has genuinely learned that lt
Is only a half life. The other half
the higher half must haunt him.
Life Is no idle dream, but a solemn
reality, based on and encompassed by
eternity. Find out your work, and
stand to It; the night cometh when no
man can work. Carlyle.
Thoughts of virtue lead to virtuous
actions; acts of virtue ripen Into hab
its; and the goodly and permanent re
sult Is the formation or establishment
of a virtuous character. Chalmers.
Experience serves to prove that the
worth and strength of a state depend
far less upon the form of its institu
tions than upon the character of Its
men; for the nation Is only the aggre
gate of the Individual conditions, and
civilization itself is but a question of
personal Improvement. Samuel
