Poem Of Life

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord

Today’s Quote on Life as Mystery

There is nothing in the world that is not mysterious, but the mystery is more evident in certain things than in others: in the sea, in the eyes of the elders, in the color yellow, and in music.

Jorge Luis Borges

Something to Think About

Before I take my last breath, before my last flower withers, I wish to live, I wish to make love, I wish to be in this world close to those who need me, those who I need, in order to learn, comprehend and rediscover that I can be and I want to be better at every moment.

Ahmad Shamloo

“What I Live For” Poem by G. L. Banks

I live for those that love me
For those that know me true,
For the heaven that smiles above me,
And waits my coming, too;
For the cause that lacks assistance,
For the wrongs that need resistance,
For the future in the distance,
For the good that I can do.

G. L. Banks.

Something to Think About

Our conduct should show that we are on this earth to play a magnificent part in life’s drama, to make a splendid contribution to humanity.

Orison Swett Marden

 

You are important! You have a wonderful gift to offer this world. What is it?

Are you still searching for it?

In quiet and stillness you will know and once you know let nothing distract you from cultivating it and sharing it with others.
