A Quiet Mind

Calm-Sea-Sunset-Wallpaper[1]

However mean your life is, meet it
and live it; do not shun it and call
it hard names. It is not so bad as
you are. It looks poorest when you
are richest. The fault-finder will
find faults even in paradise. Love
your life, poor as it is. You may
perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling,
glorious hours, even in a poorhouse.
The setting sun is reflected from the
windows of the almshouse as brightly
as from the rich man’s abode; the
snow melts before its door as early
in the spring. I do not see but a
quiet mind may live as contentedly
there, and have as cheering thoughts,
as in a palace.
