We are not to make the ideas of contentment and aspiration quarrel, for God made them fast friends. A man may aspire, and yet be quite content until it is time to raise; and both flying and resting are but parts of one contentment. The very fruit of the gospel is aspiration.

  • Worry


The advertisements in a newspaper are more full knowledge in respect to what is going on in a state or community than the editorial columns are.
