Go back to We live in deeds

Philip James Bailey (1816 - 1905)
We live in deeds

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Life?s but a means unto an end; that end
Beginning, mean, and end to all things,?God.
