1856 – 1915
I believe that the best way to prepare for a future life is to be kind, live one day at a time and do the work you can do best, doing it as well as you can.
I believe we should remember the week-day, to keep it holy. I believe that sin is misdirected energy. I believe that there is no devil but fear. I believe that no one can harm you but yourself.
I believe in my own Divinity – and yours. I believe that we are all sons of God and that it doth not yet appear what we shall be. I believe that the only way we can reach the Kingdom of Heaven is to have the Kingdom of Heaven in our hearts.
I believe in every man minding his own business, because I believe in freedom – social, economic, domestic, political, mental, spiritual.
I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts – because it is what we think and do that makes us what we are.
I believe in the paradox of success through failure, that death is a manifestation of life and that the Universe was planned for good.
