Give me work to do, Give me health, Give me joy in simple things,
Give me an eye for beauty, A tongue for truth, A heart that loves,
A mind that reasons, A sympathy that understands.
Give me neither malice nor envy, But a true kindness
And a noble common sense. At the close of each day
Give me a book And a friend with whom I can be silent.
~ S. M. Frazier ~
Wisdom and self-understanding can sometimes be of greatest benefit if consciously allowed to improve our life in a spontaneous fashion, for excessive analysis of new revelations about ourselves creates the possibility of diluting any positive intentions that are cultivated.
