Our life on this earth is very brief. Like a flicker of light, it is blown out before we know it. There is no time in it to fuss, fret or fume over trifles. There is nothing worthwhile in it except to be kind and helpful to our fellow men. There is no real happiness in it except to be generous and give freely to help our burdened friends.
