The article below was written by Grenville Kleiser and appeared in a book titled, “Inspiration and Ideals” which was published in 1917. Mr. Kleiser’s teachings are every bit as vital today as they were then.
I type the articles and poems onto the web site just as they appeared in the original publication, so you’ll notice small differences while reading. For example, practise instead of practice. It’s important to me that Grenville’s voice be heard rather than my own. I want you to sit down and visit with him – just be prepared for him to make his appearance in black and white, dressed in clothing appropriate in the early 1900’s, and to speak with an accent!
A favorite author of mine, you’ll find LOTS of Grenville Kleiser’s writings, quotes, and teaching on Self Help Daily! – Joi
To be strong and true; to be generous in praise and appreciation of others; to impute worthy motives even to enemies; to give without expectation of return; to practise humility, tolerance, and self-restraint; to make the best use of time and opportunity; to keep the mind pure and the judgment charitable; to extend intelligent sympathy to those in distress; to cultivate quietness and non-resistance; to to speak little and listen much; to adhere always to a high standard of thought, purpose, and conduct; to grow in grace, goodness, and gratitude; to seek truth and righteousness; to work, love, pray, and serve daily; to aspire greatly, labor cheerfully, and take God at His word – this is to travel Heavenward.
