Do good, and leave behind you a monument
of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy.
Write your name, in kindness, love, and mercy,
on the hearts of thousands you come in contact
with, year by year: you will never be forgotten.
No, your name, your deeds, will be as legible
on the hearts you leave behind as the stars
on the brow of evening.
Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven.
~ Thomas Chalmers
