Memorize these Short Poems
To You, From Me
For you, this day,
A rainbow 'cross the sky,
A safe, clear way
Without the asking: "Why?"
Just simple beauty
There for all to see,
A gift of gentle love
To you, from me!
The Superior Man
The way of a superior man is threefold:
Virtuous, he is free from anxieties;
Wise, he is free from perplexities;
Bold, he is free from fear.
Margaret E. Bruner
I found the task that I had dreaded so
Was not so difficult when once begun;
It was the dread itself that was the foe,
And dread once conquered means a victory won.
When all seems doom
Look for the good
It is in the air
Friends Are Like Gold
People come and people go
True friends will show
When you are low
Treasure these souls
For they are like gold
Never make a defense or an apology until you are accused.
King Charles I
It matters more what's in a woman's face than what's on it.
Sometimes the heart sees
what is invisible to the eye.
H. Jackson Brown Jr
Charity begins at home, but should not end there.
There's no abiding success without commitment.
Not the fastest horse can catch a word spoken in anger.
It takes strength to be firm, it takes courage to be gentle.
Don't let a man put anything over on you except an umbrella.
Poetry is to prose as dancing is to walking.
A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
John Christian Bovee
