Don't look too hard except for something agreeable; we can find all the disagreeable things we want, between our own hats and boots.
—Leigh Hunt.

Instead of a gem or a flower, cast the gift of a lovely thought into the heart of a friend.
—George Macdonald.

For the want of common discretion the very end of good breeding is wholly perverted; and civility, intended to make us easy, is employed in laying chains and fetters upon us, in debarring our wishes, and in crossing our most reasonable desires and inclinations.
—Jonathan Swift

If it be possible, as much as in you lieth, be at peace with all men.
—Romans 12. 18

My Lord, help me to adjust my life to what I ought to be, rather than be content in what I am. May I not spend my time in dreaming of obstacles, or searching for things that hurt, but may I be gentle and kind, and as I see the truth speak for it and follow it. Amen.
