More good than evil in humanity.
Love lights more fires than hate extinguishes,
And men grow better as the world grows old.“

LOVE ABSOLUTE“

„You never can tell when you do an act
Just what the result will be;
But with every deed you are sowing a seed,
Though the harvest you may not see.“

— Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Context: p>You never can tell when you do an act Just what the result will be; But with every deed you are sowing a seed, Though the harvest you may not see. Each kindly act is an acorn dropped In God's productive soil; You may not know, yet the tree shall grow And shelter the brows that toil.You never can tell what your thoughts will do In bringing you hate or love; For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swifter than carrier doves. They follow the law of the universe — Each thing must create its kind; And they speed o'er the track to bring you back Whatever went out from your mind.</p You Never Can Tell (1895).

Far less my shame, than if by stubborn act,
I brand as lie, some great colossal Fact.“

Is the word that comes from the heart.“
