“1916 Thank God”

“It is nice to be nice”

There is no road, though rough and steep
Without an end at last,
And every rock upon the way
by patience can be passed.
There are few human hearts too hard
For gentleness to win;
Somewhere a hidden chink appears
Where love may enter in.

S. S.

The way to Heaven.
Turn to the right and keep straight on.
