Happiness

Much happiness is overlooked because it doesn’t cost anything.

Life

Let me but live my life from year to year,

With forward face and unreluctant soul.

Not hurrying too, nor turning from the goal;

Not mourning for the things that disappear

In the dim past, nor holding back in fear

From what the future veils; but with a whole

And happy heart, that pays it’s toll

To youth and age, and travels on with cheer.

So let the way wind up the hill or down,

O’er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy;

Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,

New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,

I shall grow old, but never lose life’s zest,

Because the road’s last turn will be the best.

~Henry van Dyke~

Look To This Day!

Look to this day!

For it is life, the very life of life.

In it’s brief course

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:

The bliss of growth,

The glory of action,

The splendor of achievement.

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision,

But today well lived makes every yesterday

A dream of happiness

And tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day!

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

~Kalidasa~

I’m Going Your Way

I’m going your way, so let us go hand in hand.  You help me and I’ll help you.  We shall not be here very long, for soon death, the kind old nurse, will come back and rock us all to sleep.  Let us help one another while we may.

~William Morris~

Enjoy Life

If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time.  Not tomorrow, nor next year, nor in some future life after we have died.  The best preparation for a better life next year is a full, complete, harmonious, joyous life this year.  Our beliefs in a rich future life are of little importance unless we coin them into a rich present life.  Today should always be our most wonderful day.

Different Drummer

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him keep step to music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Thy Burden

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.
