Corra May Harris
A woman would rather visit her own grave than the place where she has been young and beautiful after she is aged and ugly.
After you are dead it doesn't matter if you were not successful in a business way. No one has yet had the courage to memorialize his wealth on his tombstone. A dollar mark would not look well there.
So long as a man attends to his business the public does not count his drinks. When he fails they notice if he takes even a glass of root beer.
This is the wonderful thing about the pure in heart--they do see God.
