Short Thoughts To Live By
By Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020
Always show love
Just be yourself don't compare yourself to others
Take one day at a time, that is all you're guaranteed
You are extraordinary, believe in yourself
Don't stress, will this matter in 5 years
Always appreciate family and friends
Live your dreams by setting your goals
Always focus on your blessings, not your troubles
Worrying is a waste of time
Laugh every day
Keep your attitude positive
Share your blessings with others
Choose to be happy every day
Read books that encourage you
Take one step at a time, don't get overwhelmed
It's never too late to achieve your dreams
Be an encourager
Be kind to yourself
Always remember, you are one of a kind!
Good advice in these words about how to live life.
Poet Grant Ngobean
I believe in life we should be grateful
Of what we have and who we are.
A human being means be alive
And being alive means taking authority of your life.
When you meet challenges stand your ground
And don't be moved by the wind
A human being is like tent,
Has no foundation, when it rains it gets wet
When the wind blows it goes to whichever direction the wind takes it to
With time it gets torn and has to be patched up, that is a life of a man
We go through different challenges in life;
They should make you and not break you
They ought to make you strong
And not discourage you; do not hold to the situation
Go through it and live on,
But remember the lesson learned through it
Live according to Gods calling; move in love, love peace and happiness
Life is too short to live in bitterness, anger and negativity
And take authority; stop looking for wrong in others
Treasure the little that you have, work on it, be happy and appreciate life
Do what you do best,
Last but not least humble yourself, and let people see God through you

The Art of Taking Time To Live
By Wilferd Peterson
To get the most out of life we must take time
to live as well as to make a living.
We must practice the art of filling our moments
with enriching experiences that will give
new meaning and depth to our lives.
We should take time for good books,
time to absorb the thoughts of
poets and philosophers, seers and prophets.
. . .music that washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
. . . friendships; time for talks by the fire and walks beneath the stars.
. . . children; that we may find again the Kingdom of Heaven within our hearts.
. . . laughter; time for letting go and filling the heart with mirth.
. . .
travel; time for pilgrimage and festival
. . . nature; time for flower gardens, trees, birds, and sunsets.
. . . love and be loved; for love is the greatest thing in the world.
. . . people; time for the interplay of personalities and the interchange of ideas.
. . . solitude; time to be quiet and alone and to look within.
. . . give of ourselves;
... that we may contribute to
the onward march of man.
. . . worship; time for opening our lives to God's
infinite springs of vitality, that we may live more abundantly.
In all ways let us make our moments glow with life.
Need some motivation read the words of this Poet.
It encourages us to find our purpose, what we believe in.
Live For Something
Poet: Thomas Chalmers
Live for something!
Do good and leave behind you a
monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy.
Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy
on the hearts of the thousands you come in contact with,
year by year, and you will never be forgotten.
Your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts
you leave behind, as the stars on the brow of evening.
Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven.
How To Live
Poet: Byron Pulsifer, ©2020
There are so many who think
That it is vitally fine to shrink.
From those who would give and give
To know that what they do holds no negative.
When one looks all around
There are always lovely sounds.
The joy of laughter through the day
Should we really cast astray?
Through the valleys day behold
I should try to be so bold.
To cast about with those around
The merry sounds that should abound.
Fear not the darkest clouds of night
For we are here to bring delight.
Forsake the days of groans and pains
See the bright and flowery restrains.
Grab hold of those who strain
Give them your heartfelt sustains.
For over and over we declare
That cheerfulness conquers despair.
Word Of Cheer
Poet: J. A. Egerton
If you have a word of cheer
That may light the pathway drear,
Of a brother pilgrim here,
Let him know.
Show him you appreciate
What he does, and do not wait
Till the heavy hand of fate
Lays him low.
If your heart contains a thought
That will brighter make his lot,
Then, in mercy, hide it not;
Tell him so.
Bide not till the end of all
Carries him beyond recall
When beside his sable pall,
Your affection and acclaim
To do honor to his name
And to place the wreath of fame
On his brow.
Rather speak to him to-day;
For the things you have to say
May assist him on his way:
Tell him now.
Life is hard enough, at best:
But the love that is expressed
Makes it seem a pathway blest
To our feet;
And the troubles that we share
Seem the easier to bear,
Smile upon your neighbor's care,
As you greet.
Rough and stony are our ways,
Dark and dreary are our days;
But another's love and praise
Make them sweet.
Wait not till your friend is dead
Ere your compliments are said;
For the spirit that has fled,
If it know,
Does not need to speed it on
Our poor praise; where it has gone
Love's eternal, golden dawn
But unto our brother here
That poor praise is very dear;
If you've any word of cheer
Tell him so.
You Ask Me How I Live
Poet: Joseph Hobbins
Living friendly, feeling friendly,
Acting fairly to all men,
Seeking to do that to others
They may do to me again.
Hating no man, scorning no man,
Wronging none by word or deed;
But forbearing, soothing, serving,
Thus I live - and this my creed.
Harsh condemning, fierce contemning,
Is of little Christian use,
One soft word of kindly peace
Is worth a torrent of abuse.
Calling things bad, calling men bad,
Adds but darkness to their night,
If thou wouldst improve thy brother,
Let thy goodness be his light.
I have felt and know how bitter
Human coldness makes the world,
Ev'ry bosom round me frozen,
Not an eye with pity pearl'd;
Still my heart with kindness teeming,
Glad when other hearts are glad,
And my eyes a tear-drop findeth
At the sight of others sad.
Ah! be kind - life hath no secret
For our happiness like this;
Kindly hearts are seldom sad ones.
Blessing ever bringeth bliss.
Lend a helping hand to others,
Smile though all the world should frown,
Man is man, we all are brothers,
Black or white, red or brown.
Man is man through all gradations,
Little recks it where he stands,
How divided into nations
Scattered over many lands;
Man is man by form and feature,
Man by vice and virtue too,
Man in all one common nature
Speaks and binds us brothers true.
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
Fame is a fickle jade at best.
And he who seeks to win her smile
Must trudge, disdaining play or rest.
O'er many a long and weary mile.
Nor must he work alone for her,
Nor labor only for her cheers.
For doing this, it may occur
That he shall only reap her sneers.
But when he's ceased to care for self.
And is content to work and wait
For something better far than pelf,
Fame welcomes him among the great.
Poet: Evelyn Ostund
We might have left unspoken
Some of the things we said
If we had just remembered
That words can't be unsaid -
If we had been reminded
That be they harsh or kind
Our words don't die, but always live
To echo in the mind.
Ill thoughts give way to better ones
Bad deeds can be amended,
But the sting left by a bitter word
Is never, never ended.
