The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from A Heap O' Livin' by Edgar A. Guest:|
earth you'll find
Her affection duplicated; none so proud if you
Could her worth be overstated? Not by any
words of mine.

was hers to know,
Yet she bravely faced it for us, smiling in her
time of woe;
Down the years how oft we've tried her, often
selfish, heedless, blind,
A Heap O' Livin'
