Effort is its own reward.
We are here to do.
And through doing to learn;
And through learning to know;
And through knowing to attain wonder;
And through wonder to attain wisdom;
And through wisdom to find simplicity;
And through simplicity to give attention;
And through attention to see what needs to be done.

God grant me a vacation
to make bearable
what I can’t change.
A friend
to make it funny,
And the wisdom
to never get my knickers in a knot
Because it solves nothing
and makes me walk funny.
