The truth is that all of us attain the greatest success and happiness possible in this life whenever we use our native capacities to their greatest extent.Smiley Blanton
- Live while you live, the epicure would say,
And seize the pleasures of the present day;
Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
And give to God each moment as it flies.
Lord, in my views, let both united be:
I live in pleasure when I live to thee.
- Epigram on his Family Arms.
- Awake, my soul! stretch every nerve,
And press with vigour on;
A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
And an immortal crown.
- Zeal and Vigour in the Christian Race.
