With care, and skill, and cunning art,
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

With care, and skill, and cunning art,
She parried Time's malicious dart, And kept the years at bay,
Till passion entered in her heart and aged her in a day!
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

To those who have looked on the sea.

For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.

By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.
For the target art has a broad expanse,
And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

about what you believe in.

you can't or shouldn't go on.
- Hilary Clinton

Be avid.
Create apart from perfection.

Care.
Understand you die a little in every moment.
Be Enlivened
- Mary Anne Radmacher

In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
