To think and to feel constitute the two grand divisions of men and genius—the men of reasoning and the men of imagination.
Grow old along with me! the best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in his hand who saith, a whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!
—Robert Browning.
But the path of the righteous is as the dawning light, That shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
—Proverbs 4. 18.
Almighty God, I pray that I may have the grace to penetrate the deep things of life and test their truth and greatness. May I have faith in thy power and train for the best which thou hast made possible for me to live. Help me to think and feel aright, that I may be thine to-day, and in the days of to-morrow may I still be thine, ever keeping bright memories of past days. Amen.
