WHAT IS LIFE TO YOU?
T° the preacher, life’s a sermon; to the joker, Ufa'* a jest;
To the miser, life is money; to the loafer, life is rent.
To the lawyer, life's a trial; to the poet, life’s a sons.
To the doctor, life s a patient that needs troatnMnt right along;
Ta the soldier, Itfe’s a battle; to the teacher, life’s a sehooL
Life’s a good thing to the gfarter; it’s a failure to the fooL
To the man upon the engine, life’s a long and heavy grade;
It s a gamble to the gambler: to the merchant life is trade.
Life is but a long vacation to the maw that loves his work.
Life’s an everlasting effort to shun duty, to the shirk;
To the earnest Christian worker, life’s a story ever new;
Life is what we try to make it—brother, what is life to you?
Let's make 1941 a Union year. Let’s call far LABELS
