THE FOOTPATH TO PEACE
To be glatl of life, because it gives you the chance to
love, and to work, and to play, and to look up at the stars ;
to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with
yourself until you have made the best of them ; to despise
nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and
to fear nothing except cowardice ; to be governed by your
admirations, rather than your disgusts ; to covet nothing
that is your neighbor's, except liis kindness of licait and
gentleness ol 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 guide-posts on the foot
path to peace. lltnry Van Djie.
