Happiness Is A Roadside Flower
And as we journey down the open road o f life, the flowers that line
the roadside are nodding their heads encouragingly to us, and the gentle
breezes o f the day are wafting to us their fragrance.
The open road— what a world of meaning ii\ that term— open to the
men who worship at thè shrine o f the far flung dare—
Open to men who never stagger beneath the flail—
Open to men when the wolf of despair gnaws at their souls—
The open road— glimpsed through the open door o f opportunity—
through which you may pass out into the vineyards o f the world, following
the spot o f blue— ambassadors to the Human Race— God’s every star your
Building better than you know, as you put the shoes of happiness on
the feet o f little children and the staff o f happiness in the hands o f the
aged, the infirm and the weak— renew a glad note o f happiness in a bruised
wom an's heart, when death— the Arch Monarch o f the human race__ has
robbed her o f her all.
The Blue B ird o f Happiness will sing in your heart if you insure your
life today. -, *
