The Value of Happiness
edited by Mary Minerva Barrows. 1909

They who bring sunshine to the hearts of others, cannot keep it from themselves.
       J. M. Barrie.

J M Barrie -
My fairest child, I have no song to give you,
      No lark could pipe to skies so dull and gray;
Yet ere we part, one lesson I can leave you
                            For every day -
Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever;
     Do noble things, not dream them, all day long;
And so make life, death and the vast forever
     One grand sweet song.
                               Charles Kingsley.
J M Barrie -

True Happiness, (if understood) consists alone in doing good.
J M Barrie -

Happiness is a wayside flower, free to all who will pluck it, not a rare orchid only to be purchased by the rich. There is a bit of joy in every floating, fleecy cloud, every golden sunset tint in each day's evening sky. There is music in the free winds of heaven if hearts are a tune to catch the harmony. And, best of all, there is the thought of our Father's approving smile, that sunlight of His presence so sweet, so invigorating, so marvellous that we may learn to rejoice even "under the shadow."

M. G. Woodhull

J M Barrie -
Hurt no living thing:

Lady bird, nor butterfly, nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily, nor grasshopper so light to leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat, nor harmless worms that creep

Christina G. Rossetti

J M Barrie -


If you have hard work to do,
Do it now.

Today the skies are clear and blue,
Tomorrow clouds may come in view,
Yesterday is not for you;
Do it now.

If you have a song to sing,
Sing it now.
Let the tones of gladness ring
Clear as song of bird in spring.
Let every day some music bring;
Sing it now.

If you have kind words to say,
Say them now.
Tomorrow may not come your way,
Do a kindness while you may;
Loved ones will not always stay;
Say them now.

If you have a smile to show,
Show it now.
Make hearts happy, roses grow,
Let the friends around you know
The love you have before they go;
Show it now.

J M Barrie -
