F.W. Boreham tells of a man with two pockets. One has a hole in it and the other is carefully watched that no hole develops in it. Everything that he hears of a hurtful nature– insults, cutting remarks, gossip, unclean suggestions, or any such thing – he writes on a piece of paper and sticks it into his pocket with the hole. Everything that he hears that is kind, true, and helpful, he writes on a piece of paper and puts it in the pocket without the hole.
At night he pulls out all that is in the pocket without the hole, goes over all that he had put into it during the day, and thoroughly enjoys all the good things that have come his way that day.
Then he sticks his hand into the pocket with the hole and finds nothing there, so he rejoices that there are no evil things to rehearse.
