The Temporal and the Eternal

The things which we behold, and on which we can pass our judgment, are of relative value; but the things which we cannot see, and on which we cannot pass judgment, are of absolute worth. The things which are without, exist in Time: but those which are within, repose on the bosom of Eternity. Those matters about which most men are much exercised, are but transitory: but those things about which they trouble not, are everlasting. Those things which go unseen, unsought, are ever present: but those for which we are continually seeking, abide not. What is Life?—Not means, nor meat, nor fame: but character.
