A Quote by Francis M. Lyman on children, clarity, conscience, departure, husbands, love, needs, parenthood, preparation, progress, sorrow, soul, tears, time, wives, and work

We mourn; we sorrow for our loved ones that go - our wives, our husbands, our children, our parents; we sorrow for them; and it is well and proper that we should moum for them and shed tears for the loss, for it is our loss; but it is their gain, for it is in the march of progress, advancement and development. It will be all right when our time comes, when we have finished our work and accomplished what the Lord required of us. If we are prepared, we need not be afraid to go, for it will be one of the most pleasant sensations that ever comes to the soul of man, whenever he departs, if he can go with a clear conscience into the presence of the Lord.

Francis M. Lyman (1840 - 1916)
