My Motto
The history of yesterday is the chisal that shapes the tomorrows we live today.
Each of use can make a difference in anothers life.
Sometimes we do so without even realizing it.
If you love someone take time to say it.
If you need something ask for it.
If you have a memory share it
We are all faced with problems and situations from time to time that seem impossible to over come or to finish. While I was in High School I had a chance to met a wonderful lady who taught me a poem. I will never forget this poem.
Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,But, he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it.He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that;At least no one has done it";But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,There are thousands to prophesy failure;There are thousands to point out to you one by one,The dangers that wait to assail you.But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,Just take off your coat and go to it;Just start to sing as you tackle the thing That "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it.
from Collected Verse of Edgar Guest NY:Buccaneer Books, 1976, pg. 285
