Happy New Year
Here are some New Year's thoughts from Agnes Deans Cameron, one of British Columbia's famous women.
We are men, now, and women, in a world of work. Let us do that work as well as we can, without stopping to ask if we were once slugs or will one day be angels. And have a kind word and a smile for the next one you meet; he too is fighting a hard fight.
Victoria, January 1, 1903.
