"Because of their importance, we must not neglect our homes in the rapid changes of the present day. For when tests of character come in later years, strength to the good will not come from modern improvements or amusements...but from the quiet moments and the "still small voices" of the old home. Nothing can ever take the place of this early home influence..."
"Cooperation, helpfulness, and fair dealing are so badly needed in the world, and if they are not learned as children at home, it is difficult for grownups to have a working knowledge of them. So much depends on starting the children right!"
"To me, it is a joy that 'no man knoweth what a day may bring forth', and that life is a journey from one discovery to another. It makes every day a real adventure..."
"Let's not make such a habit of hurry and work that when we leave this world, we will feel impelled to hurry through the spaces of the universe using our wings as feather dusters to clean away the star dust. The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies."
Times have changed since Laura lived...but the essentials haven't!
