Golden Words for Daily Counsel (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Golden Words for Daily Counsel But it is not enough to check, - sometimes we must stimulate, - and the best brake is the bal ance-wheel which stores up power against the time of need. Such a balance-wheel in matters of conduct is supplied by a judicious store of moral and religious truths, and forathis purpose has the present collection been put together. It is the product of a long and extended course of reading, of painstaking selection, and is inspired by a sincere desire to benefit all who may become familiar with its contents. The hope of both compiler and editor is that it may serve in some manner to enlarge the idea of personal duty, to lessen the little offences that are so apt to make the life in common unbearable, to incite to words and deeds of mutual kindliness, to broaden and deepen the sense of charity, which is the sense of love. As things now are there must be evil in the world, hatred among men, cruelty and the suffering that comes of cruelty on every side. It remains for those who aspire to do good, who would live in the spirit and not in the gratifica tion of bodily passions and desires, who would be glad to see the kingdom of God on earth. To sink their trivial differences of creed and doctrine, to open the selfish barriers that divide their forces.
