How Wonderful it Is
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single minute before starting to improve the world.
– Anne Frank –
Deeds of kindness are equal in weight to all the commandments.
– The Talmud –
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
– Desmond Tutu –
A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet
Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land
Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap
Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
