Common People (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Common People The one point you may be assured of is, that your hap piness does not at all depend on the size of your house (or if it does, rather on its smallness than largeness) but depends entirely upon your having peaceful and safe possession of it - On your habits of keeping it clean and in order on the materials of it being trustworthy, if they are no more than stone and turf and on your contentment with it, so that gradually you mend it to your mind, day by day, and leave it to your children a better house than it was. To your children, and to theirs, desiring for them that they may live as you have lived; and not strive to forget you, and stammer when any one asks who you were, because, forsooth, they have become fine folks by your help.
