A Soldier’s Prayer

(found on the body of an American Soldier during World War I)

Lord God, I have never spoken to you,
but now I want to say how do you do?

You see God they told me you didn’t exist,
and like a fool I believed all this.

Last night from a shell hole I saw your sky,
I figured right then they had told me a lie.

Had I take time to see the things you made,
I would have known they weren’t calling a spade a spade.

I wonder God if you’ll take my hand,
somehow I feel that you’ll understand.

Funny how I had come to this hellish place,
before I had time to see your face.

I guess there really isn’t much more to say,
but I’m sure glad God that I met you today.

I guess zero hour will soon be here,
But I’m not afraid since I know you’re near.

The signal, well God I’ll have to go,
I like you lots, I want you to know.

Look now this will be a horrible fight,
who knows I may come to your house tonight.

Though I wasn’t friendly to you before,
I wonder God if you’d wait at your door.

Look I’m crying, I’m shedding tears,
I’ll have to go now, God, goodbye.

Strange now since I met you,
I’m not afraid to die.

Spontaneous

YOLO => “you only live once” or in Latin, “carpe diem” (“seize the day“). We live when we risk…of course accountably and thoughtfully!
You never know how marvelous and talented you are, you never know what skills you can learn.

Financial Independence Quotes


Don’t sell out your virtues, values and principles to the pursuit of your goals ~ Jim Rohn


Wages will make you a living, profits will make you a fortune ~ Jim Rohn

No youth should save, but invest;

No youth should save, but invest; because not risking is even a greater risk. Create, don’t accumulate! The older you get, your creativity reduces, and so does your opportunities to invest.

Accomplishment

+he who would accomplish little need sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much. He who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.

~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

They who think of themselves great but don’t serve are in servitude…

Casual

You go in life casually, you might end up a casualty. Comfort is a beginning of losing stability. Life is too short to live miserable, either way, you can’t get out of life alive, so you had better spent your time in the field fighting for what you believe. The healthiest eyes shed tears.

If You Want To

You can smile if you want to, just accept to appreciate others;

You can laugh if you want to, just listen /at/ the children play;

You can feel loved if you want to, just be kind with /the/ words;

You can be inspired if you want to, just give in to pull of art;

The Ladder

It grows up, and goes up;

Each climb I take, up it goes;

When I rest, up it grows;

Up I haste, it grows up;

I aim higher, up it still goes;

You Must Break It With Your Head Before You Can Make It With Hands;

If you can imagine it, then you can be it;

If you can dream it, then you can touch it;

If you can feel it, then you can believe it;

If you can see it, then you can live it;

If you can strive, then you can survive it;

If you can sound, then you can sing;


What you can’t break down, you can’t make up;

What your head can’t, your hands can not;

What you feed your mind, shapes your perspective;

What you give ~ you get, what you give ~ you are;

What goes up, must come down;

What goes around, comes back around;


It’s the will, not the skill;

It’s the walk, not the talk;

It’s getting more done, not doing more;

It’s how you respond, not react;

Its growing thru’, not going thru’;
