METHOD, AND LOVE OF HOME
. – He regarded his home as far more
sacred than the house of strangers. The “Sacred delight of his
home” was his constant joy. He would ever say that “life
was made up of little things, and that he who despised them proved a
need be in the foundation.” He carried this rule into everything.
Neither in his study nor in his dressing-room was there ever the smallest
disorder. He had so regulated all, that he could lay his hand, even
in the dark, on any book or paper he might need, and nothing could ever
delay him one minute from keeping an appointment. He considered the
time of others as sacred as his own. With all this order there was none
of that over strictness which sometimes makes it an annoyance to others.
It seemed the natural consequences of the regulation mind to which all
his actions witnessed. – Life
of the Rev. Robert Anderson
