Morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn in me. Moral reform is an effort to throw off sleep... To be awake is to be alive. I have never met a man who was quite awake... I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elivate his life by a concious endeavor. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or carve a statue and to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium thorough which we look, which morally we can do. To afffect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
