“Let us work well, dear brother, while it is day; it is our only affair in this world. At the same time, let us be very watchful that the inner life, communion with our precious Saviour, be the true source of our activities. May we be faithful to the will of God in our walk and large-hearted towards all His children. I earnestly desire to preserve the true character of the work of brethren, poor as they may be—and we are poor—for whenever we have lost the sense of it, God has chastened us.”
“Where there is wise interest of parents in them [children], they [parents] can  .  .  .  lead children to find their enjoyment with themselves in kindly care of the poor and a thousand healthful enjoyments and occupations, and this I have seen done and children grow up attached to home and family. And this Scripture contemplates.”
