The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day,
I never said an ugly word, but smiled and stuck to play.

And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood,
And I am very happy, for I know that I’ve been good.

My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair,
And I must be off to sleepsin-by, and not forget my prayer.

I know that, till to-morrow I shall see the sun arise,
No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes.

But slumber hold me tightly till I waken in the dawn,
And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.”

Robert Louis Stevenson


  1. Waking up happy, remembering my prayers and turning my work into play sounds good to me. Today I prune vines and whistle while I work. The fresh air does help us sleep.
    Thanks for sharing.
