The Secret Remedy for Misery

Have we troubles?
Let us never forget
that one of the best remedies
and most soothing medicines
is to try to do good to others,
and to be useful.
Let us lay ourselves out
to make the sorrow less
and the joy greater
in this sin-burdened world.
Feeding on our own troubles,
and pouring over our sorrows,
are one secret of the melancholy misery
in which many spend their lives.
