Thought for the Day

“Try to make at least one person happy every day,
and then in ten years you may have made
three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy,
or brightened a small town by your contribution
to the fund of general enjoyment.”

~ Sydney Smith

Born 3 June 1771 Woodford, Essex, England

An English writer and Anglican cleric. He was ordained at Oxford in 1796. Smith settled in London in 1803 where he rapidly became known as a preacher, a lecturer and a society figure. His success as a preacher was such that there was often not standing-room in Berkeley Chapel, Mayfair, where he was morning preacher.
