Love even those who do not love you. Learn this first great truth, that God is the common parent of all mankind, and that, therefore, all men are brethren: what you do for others, is all you have reason to expect from them.
Love labour. If you do not want it for food, you may for physic. Labour gives a sweetness and relish to your food, which all the spices of India cannot afford you, if you are idle. The lazy man is a burden to himself: time hangs like a great weight upon him; he wishes, but his wishes are vain. Besides, he is in danger of falling into sin; for, when the devil finds a man idle he sets him to work.
Rise betimes in the morning, and apply thyself to useful labout, either of mind or body; and then shall sloth be a stranger in thy house, and want will not come near thy dwelling.
God made the world, and all things that are in it. He made the sun to shine by day, and the moon and stars to give light by night. He made all the beasts that walk or creep on the earth, all the fowls that fly in the air, and all the fish that swim in the sea. herbs, plants and trees he made too, and all for the use of man, who was made of the dust of the earth, to be the lord of this new world; and God gave him a soul. And God brought all the beasts to the man, to see what he would call them and the man gave names to all the creatures that were brought to him : and the name that the man gave to each beast or bird, that was the name of it.
And the Lord God said it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
And the Lord God brought a deep sleep upon the man, and then took from his side a rib, of which he male him a wife, and brought her to him, and her name was Eve; and from these two sprang all the sons of men.
When the world had been made a great length of time, man be came bad, and would not serve his God; but took a wrong turn and went on in sin. Then God swept him from the earth by a great flood.
All men were swept from the face of the earth, by the flood ex-cept one good man and his three sons and their wives and from these came all the peo-ple that have been since on all the earth.
