Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Created Tuesday, March 17th 2020, 4:14:25 pm
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence, As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons, Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story, Avoid loud and aggressive persons...

The Man in the Arena by Theodore Roosevelt

Created Sunday, March 22nd 2020, 4:14:25 pm
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better, The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms...

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know, His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow, My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year, He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake, The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake, The woods are lovely...
