The Unseen Guiding Hand

There may be hard journeying through many eventful years before we realise that even in our youth there was a silent, guiding hand that lay softly upon our soul to keep it on track within range of its destiny. The ambitions of youth are many and strong, and the hunger of the heart is keen […]

The Law of Change

Once in Persia reigned a king, Who upon his signet ring Graved a maxim true and wise, Which, if held before his eyes, Gave him counsel at a glance Fit for any change or chance; Solemn words, and these are they: “Even this shall pass away.” (Theodore Tilton, 1835-1907) As we pass through life and […]
