Philip James Bailey
We live in deeds
printer friendly version
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Life?s but a means unto an end; that end
Beginning, mean, and end to all things,?God.

(from Festus. Scene v. A Country Town.)
