A Father’s Advice


A Father’s Advice…

On the birth of his first daughter, Lt. Commander J.P. Carr received a letter of advice from his father: “Teach her as many of the seven thousand words of the English language as you have time to, but be sure she knows that:

the greatest word is God;

the longest word is Eternity;

the swiftest word is Time;

the nearest word is Now;

the darkest word is Sin;

the meanest word is Hypocrisy;

the deepest word is Soul.
