  • The Goal of Life

    From the Omaha Daily Bee, January 18, 1914. By Grace Sorenson.

    I call it not success
    To gain a fortune or
    To win renown, unless
    In climbing upward thou
    Hast left a trail behind
    Of happiness for those
    Along the way. If greed
    Has been thy only aim,
    Then thou hast missed the goal
    Of life, while he who treads
    The lowly paths and helps
    His fellowmen receives
    A greater joy than thou
    Canst find in wealth or fame.
