WISE WORDS

Last night, I watched Harold Wilson's speech to the 1975 Labour Party Conference in Blackpool.  I thought I'd share it.

He quoted these words from Lord Soper:


"Grant us a vision of our land, fair as it might be;


A land of righteousness where none shall wrong his neighbour;


A land of plenty where evil and poverty shall be done away;


A land of brotherhood where all success shall be founded on service, and honour shall be given to excellence alone;
A land of peace, where order shall not rest on force, but on the love of all for the common life and *weal;


Bless our efforts to make the vision a living reality;

Inspire and strengthen each one of us that we may give time, thought and sacrifice to speed the day of its coming."

Idealistic, of course, but worth a ponder.

* Must admit, I had to look up the meaning of weal - the common good
