Home is the nicest word there is.
The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies.
As you read my stories of long ago I hope you will remember that the things that are truly worthwhile and that will give you happiness are the same now as they were then. Courage and kindness, loyalty, truth, and helpfulness are always the same and always needed.

Every job is good if you do your best and work hard. A man who works hard stinks only to the ones that have nothing to do but smell.

Suffering passes, while love is eternal. That's a gift that you have received from God. Don't waste it.
