MAXIMUS

From the February 1903 issue of The Christian Science Journal


I hold him great who for love's sake Can give with generous, earnest will; Yet he who takes for love's sweet sake, I think I hold more generous still. I bow before the noble mind That freely some great wrong forgives; Yet nobler is the one forgiven, Who bears that burden well and lives.
