The world would like to change you;
There are pressures all around.
You must decide just who you are,
then firmly hold your ground.
You have an image of yourself,
an ideal sense of you;
And to this vision you must always
struggle to be true.
You know what you are good at,
and you know where talents lie;
But if you're ruled by others,
your uniqueness could pass by.
Remember, there is much to learn;
But all new things aren't good,
wisdom lies in what you've learned
and what you have withstood.
So, be yourself and don't allow
the world to take control.
Preserving your identity
is life's most precious goal.
~ Bruce B. Wilmer
P O W E R F U L T H O U G H T S
The clock of life is wound but once,
and no man has the power to tell just where
The hands will stop
at late or early hour.
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed;
To lose one's health is more;
To lose one's soul is such a loss,
as no man can restore.
The present only is our own
Live, love, toil with a will -
Place no faith in "tomorrow" - for
The clock may then be still.
Lord, make me an instrument
of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me,
Where there is injury, pardon:
Where there is doubt, faith:
Where there is despair, hope:
Where is there darkness, light:
and where there is sadness, joy.
Divine Master, grant that I
may not so much seek to be
consoled as to console:
to be understood as to
to be loved as to love:
For it is in giving that we
it is in pardoning that we
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Dare to try
Dare to make a commitment
Dare to take risks
If you don't risk, you'll never get ahead
You'll never solve your problems
To laugh is to risk appearing to be the fool
To cry is to risk appearing weak and sentimental
To reach for another is to risk involvement
To expose your feelings is to risk exposing yourself
To express your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To live is to risk death
To believe is to risk despair
To try is to risk failure
BUT, RISK MUST BE TAKEN, BECAUSE THE GREATEST HAZARD IN LIFE IS TO RISK NOTHING
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they will not learn to feel, change, grow love and live
People who risk nothing; do nothing, have nothing, value nothing and are nothing
Chained by their attitudes they have forfeited their freedom, Thus they are slaves
ONLY HE WHO DARES TO RISK IS TRULY FREE
