For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that
you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
to paint a picture, write a letter
bake a cake, or plant a seed
ponder the difference between want and need.

Dust if you must, but there is not much time
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb
music to hear and books to read
friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
this day will not come round again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go, as go you must
You, yourself, will make more dust!

Here is an excerpt from a poem by W.H. Auden that is longer but this particular stanza has powerful meaning for me:

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
Thre is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.


A voice for the unfolded lie or die unless we love one another-powerful and I don't think he is just talking about a physical death.

Pensively, Charles

Throughout the years there have been some wonderful poems, sayings, stories and quotes posted here. Some are old enough to now be in our Archives, but their messages are timeless.
