If All The Skies

If all the skies were sunshine,

Our faces would be fain

To feel once more upon them

The cooling splash of rain.

If all the world were music,

Our hearts would often long

For one sweet strain of silence,

To break the endless song.

If life were always merry,

Our souls would seek relief,

And rest from weary laughter

In the quiet arms of grief.

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.

There is a fountain of youth:  It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love.  When you learn to tap this source, you will have truly defeated age.

Personal Integrity

We choose to behave with personal integrity…not because it will make someone else feel better, but because it reflects a way of living that enriches and heals us.

Forget Not…

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
