Everyone Has Their Story

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Treat people as they are and they remain that way. Treat them as though they were what they can be and help them become what they are capable of becoming. ~ Goethe

Gracefully surrending the things of youth

'Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.'

Lifters and Leaners
There are two kinds of people on earth today Just two kinds of people, no more I say. Not the good or the bad, for ’tis well understood That good are half bad and the bad are half good. Not the rich or the poor, for to know a man’s wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health, Not the happy or sad, for the swift flying years Bring to each man his gladness and to each man his tears. No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean Are the people who lift and the people who lean, And wherever you go, you will find the world’s masses Are always divided into just these two classes; And oddly enough you will find too, I ween There is only one lifter to twenty who lean, In which class are you – are you easing the load Of the toilsome toiler who toils down the road, Or are you a leaner, who makes others bear Your share of the labor and worry and care? ~ Author Unknown
