Signs of the Times

The Window Cleaner in The Evening News Portsmouth, Hampshire, England

Only the givers can oust the grabbers in the world of men. It is the humble Christian who is content to follow in the steps of the man who went about doing good, and to practice love as he taught and practiced it, that this war-weary world needs most of all. Of all the homely virtues, there is surely none so much needed in our generation as kindness and courage. (I like the schoolboy's definition when he said that courage is that part of our make-up which says "Stick it" when all the rest of us says "Chuck it"!)
