Better To Love

by admin on January 5, 2011 · 1 comment

Better to love than beloved,
Though lonely all the day;
Better the fountain in the heart
Than the fountain by the way.

Better than thrill a listening crowd,
Sit at a wise man’s feet;
But better teach a child than toil
To make thyself complete.

Better a death when work is done,
Than earth’s most favored birth;
Better a child in God’s great house,
Than the King of all the earth.

George MacDonald
