Light in My Darkness
by Helen Keller
Johnny Appleseed: American Legends
O light-bringer of my blindness,
O spirit never far removed!
Ever when the hour of travail deepens,
Thou art near;
Set in my soul like jewels bright
Thy words of holy meaning,
Till death with gentle hand shall lead me
to the Presence I have loved--
My torch in darkness here
My joy eternal there.
The Transformative Power of Literature
The world is so full of a number of things
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Stories of Great Humanitarians and Missionaries
The Story of John G. Paton Told for Young Folks
A heart full of thankfulness,
A thimbleful of care,
A soul of simple hopefulness,
An early morning prayer.
A smile to greet the morning with,
A kind word is the key
To open the door and greet the day,
What'er it brings to thee.
A patient trust in Providence
To sweeten all the way,
All these, combined with thoughtfulness,
Will make a happy day.
Book of Prophecies quotes are from the Delno C. West and August Kling translation.
