Climb the mountain, not so that the world can see you. But so you can see the world.
You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!
A man is as great as the dreams he dreams, as great as the love he bears, as great as the values he redeems, as great as the happiness he shares. A man is as great as the thoughts he thinks, as the worth he has attained, as the fountains from which his spirit drinks, and the insight he has gained. A man is as great as the truth he speaks, as great as the help he gives, As great as the destiny he seeks,”as great as the life he lives”=====
=======Somebody Said it Could’nt be done=======
Somebody said it couldnt be done, but he with a chuckle replied, that maybe it couldnt, but he would be one that wouldnt sat so tell he tried. so he buckled right in with a trace of a grin on his face. if he worried, he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing, that couldent be done, and he did it. Somebody scoffed: oh you’ll never do that, atleist no one has ever done it, but he took off his coat and he took off his hat, and first thing we knew, hed begun it. With a lift of the chin and a bit of a grin, without any doubt or quiddit, he started to sing, as he tackled the thing, that couldent be done and he did it. There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done. there are thousands to prophesy failure, there are thousands to point out to you, one by one, the dangers that wait to assail you. but just buckle with a bit of a grin, just take off your coat and go do it, just start to sing as you tackle the thing that couldent be done, and you’ll do it.======
=====No sense in pretense=====
You tell what you are by the friends you seek, by the manner in which you speak. By the way you employ your leisure time, by the use you make of dollar and dime. You tell what you are by the things you wear, by the spirit in which your burdens bear, by the sense of humor you display, by the music that your stereo plays, you tell what you are by the way you walk, by the things in which you delight to talk, by the manner in which you bear defeat, by so simple a thing as how you eat. By the books you choose from a well-filled shelf; in these ways and more, you tell on yourself. so there’s really no particle of sense, in anny effort at pretense.=====Pretense,,,false behavior or appereance======
===Be not afraid of greatness: some men are born great, some acheive greatness, and some have it thrust upon them======
======The only thing needed for Evil to triumph, is for good people too do nothing.======
your mind is a meadow, to plant for your needs, you are the farmer, with knowledge for seeds. Don’t leave your meadow Unplanted and bare, Sow it with knowledge and tende it with care. Who’d be a know-nothing When he might grow, the seed of knowledge, of stars, and of snow. The science of numbers, the stories of time, the magic of music, the secrets of rhyme. Don’t be a know-nothing! plant in the spring, and see what a harvest the summer will bring.======.
=====Tis a reason you should heed,Try,try again;If at first you don’t succeed,Try,try again; Then your courage should appear, For, then you will persevere, you will conquer, never fear, Try, try again=======
=======THE GREAT WERE ONCE AS YOU========The great were once as you. they whom men magnify today, Once grope and blundered on lifes way. were fearful of themselves, and thought by magic was mens greatness wrought. they feared to try what they could do; yet fame hath crowned with her success the selfsame gifts that you possess. The great were once as you, Dreaming the very dreams you hold, Longing, Yet fearing, to be bold, doubting that they themselves possessed, the streangth and skill for every test,uncertain of the truths they knew, not sure that they could stand to fate, with all the courage of the great. Then came a day when they Their first bold venture made, scorning to cry for aid. they dared to stand to fight alone, took up the gauntlet life had thrown, Charged full-front to the fray, Mastered there fear of self, and then learned that our great men are but men. Oh, Youth, go forth and do! you, too, to fame may rise; you can be strong and wise. stand up too life and play the man, you can if you but think you can; “THE GREAT WERE ONCE AS YOU” you envy them, their proud success “twas won with gifts that you possess”=====
