 Take these thoughts with you for the year; go down into the valley with your brothers and work them out in life.

Excerpt:

Let us not concern ourselves about how other men will do their duties, but concern ourselves about how we shall do ours. — Lyman Abbott.

If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counsellor, caution your elder brother, and honesty your guardian genius. — Addison.

Intend honestly and leave the event to God.
— Aesop.


The world is a school and the business of its occupants, the pursuit of education fitting them to grad-
rate into the invisible university of God.
— W. R. Alger.


After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem, there is a solution, and the soul's indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer. — TV. R. Alger.

The birth of a little child reveals God; the helplessness of a little child proves providence; the innocence of a little child illustrates heaven; the death of a little child implies immortality. Surely no little one sent into an earthly home, even but for a day, and bequeathing these beautiful and sublime lessons can be thought to have come and gone in vain. — W. R . Alger.

All high happiness has in it some element of love; all love contains a desire for peace. One immediate effect of a new happiness is to make us turn toward the past with a wish to straighten out its difficulties, heal its breaches and forgive its wrongs. — James Lane Allen.
