Robert H. Smith - Quotes
Life's Clock

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop--
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more,
To lose one's soul is souch a loss
As no man can restore.

The present only is our own;
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in tomorrow,
For the clock may then be still.
Etta Johnson
