Content makes poor men rich; discontentment makes rich men poor.
-Benjamin Franklin

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
-Helen Keller

Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.

And I started smiling too.

A man’s greatest care should be for that place where he lives longest; therefore eternity should be his scope.

—Thomas Watson


When the race is ended, and the play is either won or lost, and ye are in the utmost circle and border of time, and shall put your foot within the march of eternity, all the good things of your short nightdream shall seem to you like ashes of a blaze of thorns or straw.

—Samuel Rutherford

Take Time

To Think. It is the source of power.
To Play. It is the secret of perpetual youth.
To Read. It is the fountain of wisdom.

To Love and Be Loved. It is a God-given privilege.
To be Friendly. It is the road to happiness.

Reputation And Character


The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation; the truth you believe determines your character.
Reputation is what you are supposed to be; charaacter is what you are.
Reputation is the photograph; character is the face.
Reputation comes over one from without; character grows up from within.
Reputation is what you have when you come to a new comunity; character is what you have when you go away.
Your reputation is learned in an hour; your character is built in a lifetime.
Reputation grows like a mushroom; character grows like the oak.
A single newspaper report gives you your reputation, a life of toil gives you your character.
Reputation makes you rich or makes you poor; character makes you happy or makes you miserable.
Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone; character is what the angels say about you before the throne of God.

– William Hersey Davis
