Love Your Life

img_1974

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.
