Create all the happiness we are able to create;
remove all the misery we are able to remove.
Everyday will allow us to add something to the pleasure of others,
or to diminish something of their pains.
And for every grain of joyment we sow in the bosom of another,
we shall find a harvest in our own bosom;
while every sorrow which we pluck out from the thoughts
and feelings of a fellow creature shall be replaced by
a beautiful peace and joy in the sanctuary of our soul.
