“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.”—Bessie StanleyT
Jesus never made a whip and set about the tax collectors, he never invaded the local bar and overturned the drinks on the tables. He never even went into the brothels and denounced the whores and harlots driving them out. But he did go into the temple, bastion of organised religion, and did all three. Just a thought.
As you turn the page, start each day afresh and unsullied. Leave the past behind and look to new opportunities.
