AUGUST TWENTY-FIRST

  • Lady Mary Montagu died 1762.
  • Jules Michelet born 1798.
  • John Tyndall born 1820.

Let us never be afraid of innocent joy; God is good and what he does is well done; resign yourself to everything, even happiness; ask for the spirit of sacrifice, of detachment, of renunciation, and above all, for the spirit of joy and gratitude.
—Amiel.

 

That's the wise thrush;

He sings each song twice over,

Lest you should think he never could recapture

The first fine careless rapture!

—Robert Browning.

 

And these things we write, that our joy may be made full.
—1 John 1. 4.

 

Lord God, help me to keep the things under my feet that are inclined to destroy happiness. Show me clearly the line which divides right and wrong, that I may not fear the censure of the world. Help me to act with good judgment and be calm in obeying thy laws. Amen.
