We must see to it that our pleasing of others always ministers to their good in some way, edifies them, adds something to their character, makes them braver, truer, happier.
The world is full of discouraged people, and we have power to say a hopeful word or do a kindness which will drive the discouragement from their hearts and move them again, with strength for brave, victorious, and songful living.
Love is the greatest thing in the world.
We are to see to it that everything we do and every influence of our life shall be for our neighbor’s good.
We are bound so to live that we shall do hurt to none, but shall edify- add something to the life of everyone.
St. Alexandra, Russian Tsaritsa and New Martyr (+1918)
