Be Glad of Life

Be Glad of Life
because it give you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars: to be satisfied with your possessions; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your digusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbor's except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manner; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends...and to spend as much time as you can with body and with spirit. These are little guideposts on the footpath to peace.
- Henry Van Dyke
