OUR life may be food to us, or may, if we have it so, be poison, but one or the other it must be. Whichever and whatever it is, beyond all doubt it is eminently real. So merely as the day and the night alternately follow one another, does every day when it yields to darkness, and every night when it passes into dawn, bear with it its own tale of the results which it has silently wrought upon each of us for evil or for good. The day of diligence, duty and devotion leaves it richer than it found us, richer sometimes, and even commonly, in our circumstances; richer always in ourselves.
–Wm. Ewart Gladstone.
