I Bargained With Life



“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more, 
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”

Jessie Belle Rittenhouse

Wider Than The Sky



“The brain is wider than the sky for put them side by side – The one the other will contain with ease and you beside – The brain is deeper than the sea – For hold them blue to blue – The one the other will absorb – As sponges buckets do – The brain is just the weight of God for heft them pound for pound – And they will only differ if they do – as Syllable from sound.

Emily Dickinson

Yesterday You Said Tomorrow



 

“Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow is only vision, but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. “

Desiderata

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, eve the dull and ignorant, for they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive person for they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others you may become vain and bitter; for their will always be persons greater and lesser than yourself. enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your career, however humble. It is a real blessing in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is, many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

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

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you may conceive him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your own soul.

With all of its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
