Ideals (Poem)

There are worlds around thee lying
Which thou canst not see:
There are forces round thee flying
Unperceived by thee.

Ope thine eyes, and cease denial—
Much is there concealed!
Give thy faith a fairer trial;
More shall be revealed.

It is from the inborn dictates of conscience and the inspired principle of duty that the finest growths of character have arisen.
—Samuel Smiles
I see a new religion arising, basing itself on trust in man; calling to the hitherto unstirred depths of loyalty in him,
—believing that he can love the good without thought of a reward, that the heaven of principle can reign in the human breast.
—W. M. Salter
