Getters And Givers

By Amos Russel Wells

Know yourself not of the light, if you hide at home;
Know yourself not of the heat, if aught can hold you;
Know yourself not of God, if the widest dome
That ever a hermit soul built up for itself enfold you.
There are only two kinds of men among all that live,—
The men that live to get, and the men that get to give.
