John Sullivan Dwight
Is not true leisure
One with true toil?
Dwight quotes
Rest is not quitting
The busy career,
Rest is the fitting
Of self to one's sphere.
Work, and thou wilt bless the day
Ere the toil be done;
They that work not, can not pray,
Can not feel the sun.
God is living, working still,
All things work and move;
Work, or lose the power to will,
Lose the power to love.

Dwight John Sullivan quotes
'T is loving and serving
The Highest and Best!
'T is onwards! unswerving,
And that is true rest.
Dwight John Sullivan
'T is the brook's motion,
Clear without strife,
Fleeing to ocean
After its life.
