Life is mostly froth and bubble . . .

A wise quote

This morning I was listening to Ramona Koval‘s interview with PD James the author of the Adam Dalgleish Mysteries. The interview was part of P.D. James’ ninetieth birthday celebrated via a podcast from Radio National’s Book Show back on 4th August 2010.

During the interview Ms James mentioned a really nice quote from a poem by Adam Lindsay Gordon, here it is:

Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.

Adam Lindsay Gordon
