A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on business, cheerfulness, contentment, day, duty, gifts, kindness, laughter, play, prayer, and sleep

A Morning Prayer The day returns and brings us the petty round of irritating concerns and duties. Help us to play the man; help us to perform them with laughter and kind faces, let cheerfulness abound with industry. Give us to go blithely on our business all this day. Bring us to our resting beds weary and content and undishonored and grant us in the end the gift of sleep.
