POEMS: “I believe” by Elbert Hubbard

 “I believe”

I believe that the best way to prepare for a future life is to be kind, live one day at a time and do the work you can do best, doing it as well as you can.

I believe we should remember the week-day, to keep it holy. I believe that sin is misdirected energy. I believe that there is no devil but fear. I believe that no one can harm you but yourself.

I believe in my own Divinity – and yours. I  believe that we are all sons of God and that it doth not yet appear what we shall be. I believe that the only way we can reach the Kingdom of Heaven is to have the Kingdom of Heaven in our hearts.

I believe in every man minding his own business, because I believe in freedom – social, economic, domestic, political, mental, spiritual.

I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts – because it is what we think and do that makes us what we are.

I believe in the paradox of success through failure, that death is a manifestation of life and that the Universe was planned for good.

Elbert Hubbard
1856 – 1915
