Footpath To Peace.

"To be glad 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 by your disgusts; To covet nothing that is your neighbor's except his kindness of heart and gentleness of 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 guideposts on the footpath to peace."

Henry Jackson van Dyke (November 10, 1852 - April 10, 1933) was an American author, educator, and clergyman.
