On Thoughts and Things

                           On Thoughts and Things

On Reflection

I often sit alone at night

beside one single candle's light.

My mind at peace there to reflect

on thoughts and things which men neglect.

I often think of life and love

of soaring eagle, of peaceful dove.

I often think of wood and stream

of earth and heaven so supreme.

I think of little boys and girls

of babes and toys and blonde soft curls.

I think of laughing sparkling eyes

of simple talk devoid of lies.

I think of God and humble peoples

of church and shrine and tall tall steeples.

I think of this day what was happy and sad

of brothers and sisters and mother and dad.

And as my candle's light grows dim

I go once more to talk with Him;

then sleep soon comes and overpowers

and I rest in comfort for hours and hours.

If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased. ~Katharine Hepburn
A man who limits his interests, limits his life. ~Vincent Price
What interests me in life is curiosity, challenges, the good fight with its victories and defeats. ~Paulo Coelho
The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile. ~Bertrand Russell
