When you rise in the morning, say that you will make the day blessed to a fellow creature. It is easily done: a left-off garment to the man who needs it: a kind word to the sorrowful; an encouraging expression to the struggling - trifles in themselves as light as air- will do at least for twenty-four hours.
And if you are young, depend on it, it will tell when you are old; and if you are old rest assured it will send you gently down the stream of time to eternity. By the most simple arithmetical sum, look into the result. If you send one person away happy through the day, there are 365 in the course of a year. And suppose you live forty years only. After you commence the course of medicine, you have made 14,600 persons happy, at all events for a time. Anonymous
