reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean
mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the Ultimate

lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the
hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy
that comes from work well done -- this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
We are never like angels till our passion dies
Were there no women, men might live like gods
