Quote of the Day: Myrtle Reed

"If we all tried to make other people's paths easy, our own feet would have a smooth even place to walk on."
-- Myrtle Reed

All I know about Myrtle Reed is what I read on Wikipedia; apparently she committed suicide in her thirties with an overdose of sleeping powder.  She seems to have been a well-known philanthropist and author, yet all I can think after reading her brief biography is "Did she kill herself because not enough people made her path easy, or was she tired of constantly clearing the paths of others?"  Probably neither, I suspect.

Just happened to see this quote in my day planner and liked it.
