Wilder Wisdom

Love and service, with a belief in the future and expectation of better things in the tomorrow of the world is a good working philosophy; much better than ' in olden times-- things were so much better when I was young.' For there is no turning back nor standing still, we must go forward, into the future, generation after generation toward the accomplishment of the ends that have been set for the human race.

But however fleeting and changeable life may appear to be on the surface, we know that the great underlying values of life are always the same; no different today than they were a thousand years ago. 
Laura Ingalls Wilder, Missouri Ruralist, June 1921

Pull up a chair on the porch, have some lemonade and leave your comment in my mailbox. Thanks for visiting my little cottage!
