Look for the Good (Poem)

In every man there lives a spark of goodness
However lost he seem to human sight;
It is our duty then to find and tend it,
Breathing upon it purity and light.
It may not burn at once with radiant glory,
Yet it is worth the while to make it glow,
Raising the soul with momentary longing
Unto the height where it may live and grow.

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Every great man is always being helped by everybody, for his gift is to get good out of all things and all persons.
—John Ruskin
The great obstacle to belief in the brotherhood of man is not Science, but the unbrotherliness of man.
—Rev. L. P. Jacks
