Take Care Of Little Things
Little drops of water
Make the mighty ocean.
Little grains of sand
Make this beautiful land.
Make the mighty ages.
Little pies and farthings
Make millions and crores.
Little unkind acts
Will make you a devil.
Little words of love,
Little acts of kindness,
Little good thoughts
Will make you a saint.
Morals and Ideals
Helen Steiner Rice
In this world of casual carelessness its discouraging to try to
keep our morals and standards and our ideals high we are ridiculed
and laughed at by the smart sophisticate who proclaims in brittle
banter that such things are out of date but no life is worth the
living unless its built on truth and we lay our life's foundation
made of faith and love and praying and remember that ideals are
like stars up in the sky you can never really reach them hanging
in the heavens high but like the mighty mariner who sailed the
storm-tossed sea and used the stars to chart his course with skill
and certainty you too can chart your course of life with high
ideals and love for high ideals are like the stars that light
the sky above you cannot every reach them but lift your heart
up high and your life will be as shinning as the stars in the
