7NK in my VEINS •y MARIAN INMAN "For the whole earth is the sepulchre of famous men and their story is not graven only on stone over their native earth but lives on far away without visible symbol woven into the stuff of other men's lives." Tht abovt quotation I* carved in tht marblf wall bo* noath tbo momorial modallion of Andrtw W. Motion, oroetod by ordor of tho board of trutttts, in tho lobby of tbo north ontraneo of tho National Gallory of Art. The quotation is translated from the Greek and is .from the Oration of Pericles over the dead in the Peloponnesian War. Pericles made this great appeal to the pride of his countrymen and praised the warriors .who had 'fallen in their country's service. Groat truth* are portions of tho toul of man; Groat touli are portions of eternity. —Jamet Ruttell Lowell It has been said that he has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked.appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory is a benediction, If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. — Emily Dicknison "In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in doing good to their fellow men." — Cicero. The most pitiable life is the aimless life. Heaven help the man or women, the boy or girl, who is not interested in anything outside his or her own immediate comfort and , that related thereto; who eats bread to make strength for no special cause; who pursues science, reads poetry, studios books, for no earthly or heavenly purpose other than mere enjoyment or acquisition; who goes on accumulating wealth, piling up money, with no definite or absorbing purpose to apply it to anything in particular. "Not unless we fill our existence with an aim do we make it life." It makes no difference whether the wind blows North or South, East or West if a man has no part of destination. We, must have an aim in life else our life is a vacant one and will never be, "a visible symbol woven into the stuff of other men's lives." We need to be amused now and then to help us keep sane in the busy rush of life, ever so often I read Harry Mirth- field's "Now I'll Tell One." Here is one of my favorites, called 'just an oversight.' Smith, Jones and Greene came to the big city to attend a convention. They got a room together on the 60th floor of a hotel. (That night they wont out for a bit of entertainment and returned late. As they entered the lobby of the hotel, the clerk informed the trio that the elvators had broken down and wauld not be fixed until morning. He would arrange cots for them in the lobby. "No, no," answered Jones. "We'll walk up." "But you are on the 60th floor," reminded the clerk. "We know it — but just the same we'll walk up." As the three started up the stairs, Jones again suggested something. "Boys, after all, it's 60 floors, so I have an idea. To keep it interesting while we walk up, for the first 20 floors I'll sing. The next 20 flights, Smith, you tell jokes— and, as you are by nature a sad guy, Greene, you'll toll sad stories for the last 20 floors. Anything to keep up the interest." Up they started. Jones sang for 20 flights. Then up to .the 40th floor Smith told nifty jokes. As they started for the final 20 Jones said, "Now Greene, you tell sad stories. "Have I got something sad to tell you immediately," groaned Greene! "I forgot to take the keys." "A little nonsense now and then, is relished by tho wisest men." For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that ap- peareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James IV: 14. If all of my plans work out, I'll bo writing to you next from California. Hope I have some interesting things to toll you. My daughter Mary Fran and family and my sister and daughters are eagerly awaiting me. They write they have many things planned. I am looking forward to this visit. Have a nice summer, have some picnics at home and at the lake, laugh a little, relax a bit, do a good deed for your neighbor. Be careful when you drive, be careful of your little ones around farm machinery and the power lawn mower. Be good and you'll be happy.
