What Is Your Motto?

C. Aubrey Hearn

Back in the 30's, 40's, and 50's Aubrey wrote a series of articles for the “Religion in Life” column of the Nashville Tennessean. He agreed to write the column whenever he was asked, because the newspaper paid him the (then) grand sum of $5 for each one. The following essay, which appeared in the June 19, 1939, Tennessean, contains life slogans that Aubrey had collected from various sources.

The history of biography is replete with examples of guiding principles and rules of conduct which have inspired its characters. Their testimonies are to the effect that a motto or life slogan can be of inestimable worth.
