Good Intention
 
  Many a good intention dies from inattention. If, through carelessness or indolence, or selfishness, a good intention is not put into effect, we have lost an opportunity, demoralized ourselves, and stolen from the pile of possible good. To be born and not fed, is to perish. To launch a ship and neglect it is to lose it. To have a talent and bury it, is to be a “wicked and slothful servant.” For in the end we shall be judged, not alone by what we have done, but by what we could have done.
Maltbie Babcock.
