I think the best way is to try to please every body as much as we can, and THE TWIN SISTERS. 83 not to shew oar dislike of any one, but to be- have civilly to all. " Anna. " This is certainly right, but not without something more ; for let me just put this case to you: As we are to live in this world but a very little while, and for ever in the next, is it not more our interest to please GOD, with whom, if we act as we ought, we shall then be, than it is to gain the favour of men, with whom we ...are to stay so short a time ? This life^ is not to be compared to Eternity, and it depends not on our fellow-creatures, but on the favour of GOD, whether we are to be happy or miserable there. " Charlotte. (Thoughtfully. ) " That is true : but if we behave well to our fellow-creatures, GOD is pleased is not He?'' Anna. " Certainly ; but then it depends on the motive : if we are kind to men out of love to GOD, and because he has commanded it, GOD is pleased. ; but not if our views extend only to ourselves, that people should think, or speak well of us, and not if we think that, if our actions are pleasing, it does not signify what our thoughts are.
