Keep your dreams, for in them lies joy denied to men grown wise.
Edgar A. Guest, from Keep Your Dreams
You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside...
I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way:
For Age is not alone of time, or we should never see men old and bent at forty and men young at seventy-three.
The best and the worst of you gleaming in all that you say and do, and the ting that counts isn't money, or glory, or power, but YOU!
Don't give up, what've you do; Eyes front, head high to the finish. See it through!
The best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds.
You ought to be true for the sake of the folks who think you are true. You never should stoop to a deed that your folks think you would not do. If you are false to yourself, be the blemish but small, you have injured your folks; you have been false to them all.
Be a friend. You don't need money: just a disposition sunny...
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing that "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
To do my best, and let that stand the record of my brain and hand...
You'll be richer in the end than a prince, if you're a friend.
But somehow, as day always follows the night, most of our troubles work out all right.
