Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a gift, accept it. Life is a sorrow, overcome it. Life is a tragedy, face it. Life is a mystery, unfold it. Life is an opportunity, take it. Life is a promise, complete it. Life is a struggle, fight it. Life is a goal, achieve it. Life is love, love it.
“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
―Bessie Anderson Stanley, More Heart Throbs Volume Two in Prose and Verse Dear to the American People And by them contributed as a Supplement to the original $10,000 Prize Book HEART THROBS
