great lesson in Truth learned and mastered.
Make pure thy heart, and thou wilt make
Rich, sweet and beautiful.

“Are my thoughts of, and acts towards
others prompted by unselfish love?”
As a man, in the silence of his soul,
asks himself these searching questions, he
will unerringly see where he has hitherto
