There are three material things… essential to life. These are pure air, water and earth. There are three immaterial things… essential to life. These are admiration, hope and love. Admiration– the power of discerning and taking delight in what is beautiful in visible form and lovely in human character; and necessarily striving to produce what is beautiful in form and to become what is lovely in character. Hope– the recognition, by true foresight, of better things to be reached hereafter, whether by ourselves or others; necessarily issuing in the straightforward and undisappointable effort to advance, according to our proper power, the gaining of them. Love– both of family and neighbor, faithful and satisfied.
