"When the well-known British Methodist preacher William Sangster learned that he had progressive muscular atrophy and could not get well, he made four resolutions and kept them to the end:
(1) I will never complain;
(2) I will keep the home bright;
(3) I will count my blessings;
(4) I will try to turn it to gain."
