"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's troubles,
Courage in your own."
- Adam Lindsay Gordon


  1. Would you believe, a few years ago, I bought a book in an op shop and when I got it home, the inscription on the inside cover was this saying - it's such a wonderful turn of phrase and something I often think about. Love it x

  2. I love gems like this one! In an op shop book...and not finding it until you got it home. Magic! It is so simple and wonderful isn't it? So true. I've heard it before and thinking about Jim Stynes reminded me of it. I don't know much about him at all, but what I'm hearing makes me think of this.

  3. Yes! This was a bit of a mantra for me at one stage in my life... to think I had almost forgotten it. x
