THE CHANCE

From the March 1904 issue of The Christian Science Journal

New York Herald


No man is born too late To turn his back to hate; We may not all be great Or rich or wise. The chances may be few For winning fame, but who Succeeds by gazing through Ungrateful eyes? Mankind has never had Less cause for being sad Nor more for being glad Than we possess; Ne'er has the world before Encouraged kindness more Or had such gifts in store For cheerfulness.
