HOME SWEET HOME
Home is the laugh of a baby, the song of a mother, the strength of a father, warmth of loving hearts, light from happy eyes, kindness, loyalty, and comradeship. Home is the first school and the first church for the young. Here we learn what is right, what is good, and what is kind. Home is where we go for comfort when we are hurt or sick, where joy is shared and sorrow eased, where fathers and mothers are respected and loved, and where children are wanted. Home is where money is not as important as loving kindness, and where even the teakettle sings from happiness. That is the place called home.
THINGS MONEY CAN’T BUY
Money can’t buy real friendship–real friendship must be earned. Money can’t buy a clear conscience–square dealing is the price tag. Money can’t buy happiness–happiness is a mental attitude and one may be as happy in a cottage as in a mansion. Money can’t buy sunsets, songs of the birds, and the music of the wind–these are as free as the air we breathe. Money can’t buy inward peace–peace is the result of a constructive philosophy of life.
You have to let go of the rung below when you reach for the rung above: There is no other way to climb, you know; each upward step brings more of the glow and warmth of the sun of love. But you have to let go of the rung below, when you reach for the rung above.
