How frail the thread!

(written by Whitmore Winslow at the age of 14)


How short is time, and what a small portion
is allotted to man to prepare for another world!

And yet how careless is he of that time!

How frail the thread upon which life hangs!

A few hours' illness may carry him away into
a world of endless happiness or of endless woe!
