Stick It Out
And many a failure turns about
when he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
you may succeed with another blow.
Poet: Robert Frost

Greater than being shore to the ocean -
Holding the curve of one position,
Counting an endless repetition

I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.

But kindly, gracious deeds abide,
Their wealth will not depart;
Their flowers of joy are multiplied
In gardens of the heart.

You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
If you are planning for a year,
If you are planning for a decade,
If you are planning for a lifetime,
When there is something you think you are not getting or not getting enough of, give it!
JoAnn Janson, Define Yourself and Discover Your Destiny!

If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.
Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
