THOUGHTS FOR TO-DAY.
" Wheresoe'er a man seeketh his own, there he falleth from love."—Thomas a Kenipis. "Don't look backward too much; look forward in hope." "Don't say or even think 'I can't,' if you are asked to do anything. Of course, you can't if you make up your mind to it beforehand." "There are two kinds of age—the age of your body and the age of your mind. And if the latter keeps young and active, and is always open to learn new things, you need not worry much about the other." "Trust on the Lord with all thine heart," savs the Psalmist. Times of trouble are opportunities sent by God to prove whether our religion is the real thing or no. "There fere (two freedoms—the fal*e. when a man is to do what he likes; and the true, when he is free to do what he ought."—Kingsley. Money would be a lob moro fun if It wore as easy to earn it as it is easy to spend. The world doesn't judge a man by his clothes, but by his wifes. The man who is wise in timo has all the more leisure for indiscretion. An optimist is one who not only hopes for the best, but actually expects it. The fact that riches have wings seldom enables a man to feather his nest. Every cloud has a silver lining, but that is small consolation when you cannot see through the c'.oud. True liberty consists in the enjoyment of our own rights, bub not in the destruction of the rights of others. "Every man among us has all the centuries in him."—Lord Morley. " The first symptom of disloyalty, tho first presage of disobedience, is to consult when we already know what we ought to do."— De Vidot. One of life's peculiarities is that the world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. "We do not count a man's years till he has nothing else to count."—Emerson. "Nobody can he rich who gets money out of the slums at. ths co3t of the tears and sufferings of other people."—Mrs A. Maekerly. The last word Is a prize coveted by many sensible women and few foolish men. " For my own part, I have ever gained the most profit, and the most pleasure also, from the books which have made me think the most; and, when the difficulties bare once been overcome, these are the books which have struck the deepest root, not only in my memory and understanding, but likewise in my affections."—Julius Charles Hare.
