Quote by Ruth Smeltzer
You have not lived a perfect day... unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
This quote suggests that a day can only be considered perfect if one has selflessly helped someone who is unable to reciprocate the act. It emphasizes the importance of altruism and serving others without the expectation of receiving anything in return. This notion highlights the intrinsic value of kindness and selflessness, implying that true fulfillment and contentment can be found in acts of compassion and generosity toward those who may never be able to express their gratitude.

During the 1992 election I concluded as early as my first visit to New Hampshire that Bill Clinton was hateful in his behavior to women, pathological as a liar, and deeply suspect when it came to money in politics. I have never had to take any of that back, whereas if you look up what most of my profession was then writing about the beefy, unscrupulous 'New Democrat,' you will be astonished at the quantity of sheer saccharine and drool. Anyway, I kept on about it even after most Republicans had consulted the opinion polls and decided it was a losing proposition, and if you look up the transcript of the eventual Senate trial of the president only the second impeachment hearing in American history you will see that the last order of business is a request (voted down) by the Senate majority leader to call Carol and me as witnesses. So I can dare to say that at least I saw it through.
Now, you can stand it when your body emits a stench before you realize it, or when it festers and becomes pussy and completely pollutes your skin. You make allowances for all this. In fact, this only increases your concern and love for your body; you wait on it and wash it, and you endure and help in every way you can. Why not do the same with the spouse whom God has given you, who is an even greater treasure and whom you have even more reason to love?
