Life Is A Journey
~by John Ruskin
Life is a journey. Who would set upon a vacation trip to one of our National Parks and close his eyes to all the beauty, all the fun and happiness on the journey to and from the park?
Our happiness should never be reserved to the realisation of an object. It should be found in every golden moment along the road to accomplishment.
Each of life's goals should be but stepping stones to something higher and nobler in the development of self. We should never cease, never stop, this eternal growth.
Let every dawn of the morning be to you as the beginning of life. and let every setting of the sun be to you as its close. Then let every one of these short lives leave its sure record of some kindly thing done for others; some good strength or knowledge gained for yourself.
