Inside Your Heart


It is not how you comb your hair... Or how you wear your
clothes... Your perfect speech and manner or... Sophis-
ticated pose... It is the warmth inside your heart... The
sentiment sincere... In every kindly thought expressed...
That makes your friendship dear... No money and no flatery
... Can win affection true... The value of your name and
face... Depends at last on you... How well you serve your
neighbor and... The stranger on the street... In happiness
or sorrow and... In triumph or defeat... Your interest in
the welfare of... Another soul on earth... Reflects the
final measure of... Your more important worth.
