BE HAPPY - BE BETTER!
All hearts grow warmer in the presence of one who,
seeking not his own, Gave freely for the love of giving,
Nor reaping for self the harvest sown.
Thy greeting smile was pledge and prelude
Of generous deeds and kindly words;
In thy large heart were fair guest-chambers,
Open to sunrise and the birds.

John Greenleaf Whittier

It is our daily duty to consider that in all circumstances of life, pleasurable, painful, or otherwise, the conduct of every human being affects, more or less, the happiness of others, especially of those in the same house; and that, as life is made up, for the most part, not of great occasions, but of small everyday moments, it is the giving to those moments their greatest amount of peace, pleasantness, and security, that contributes most to the sum of human good. Be peaceful. Be cheerful. Be true.

–Leigh Hunt.
