Serenity Prayer - Reinhold Hiebuhr
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can and the Wisdom to know the difference. 

"If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking." -- George S. Patton

 “Great minds think alike – but fools never differ” -- proverb

 "The man who will not act until he knows all will never act
at all." --
Jim Elliot 

"If" by Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you  Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same: If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss: If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And – which is more – you'll be a Man, my son!

Irish Blessing - see Marble plaque below
May the road rise up to meet you  May the wind be always at your back  May the sun shine warm upon your face  And the rains fall soft upon your fields  And until we meet again  May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Irish Beer Prayer - Author unknown
Here's to a long life, and a merry one,
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and a true one.
A cold beer ...
... and another one

Look To This Day - Ancient Sanskrit Poem - Full
Look to this day for it is life — the very life of life  In its brief course lie all the realities and truths of existence  the joy of growth  the glory of action  the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is already a memory and tomorrow is only a vision  but today well lived makes every yesterday a memory of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. 

Be Ye Faithful Unto This Day - Ancient Sanskrit Poem - shortened
Be ye faithful unto this day. In its brief course lie all the realities and truths of existence. For yesterday is but a memory and tomorrow a dream. Be ye faithful therefore unto this day

Take Time - unknown author
Take time to work  it is the price of success. Take time to think  it is the source of power. Take time to play  it is the secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read  it is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to be friendly  it is the road to happiness. Take time to dream  it is your highway to the stars. Take time to give  it is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to laugh  it is the music of the heart. Take time to love & be loved  it is nourishment for the soul. 

An Irish Nun's Prayer on Aging - unknown author (see alder wood version below)
Lord thou knowest, better than I know myself that
I am growing older, and will someday be old.
Keep me from the fatal habit of thinking that I must say
something on every subject, and on every occasion.
Release me from trying to straighten out everybody's affairs.
Make me thoughtful but not moody: helpful but not bossy,
With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all,
but Thou knowest Lord that I want a few friends at the end..
Keep my mind free from the recital of endless details,
Give me wings to get to the point.
Seal my lips on my aches and pains. They are increasing and
love of rehearsing them is becoming sweeter as the years go by.
I dare not ask for grace enough to enjoy the tales of others pains,
but help me to endure them with patience.
I dare not ask for improved memory, but for a growing humility, and
a lessening of cocksureness, when my memory seems to clash
with the memories of others.
Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be mistaken.
Keep me reasonably sweet. I do not want to be a saint -
some of them are so hard to live with - but a sour old person is
one of the crowning works of the devil..
Give me the ability to see good in unexpected places, and
talent in unexpected people, and the grace to tell them so.

The Star Spangled Banner - Francis Scott Keyes (shortened)
"Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight'
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Then I heard the voice of the Lord
Saying “Whom shall I send” And
who will go for us?” And I said,
“Here I am.  Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8

"We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

"Supposing is good, but finding out is better."
 --- Mark Twain

"It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject
to half the evils we anticipate than to remain in cowardly
listlessness for fear of what might happen." ---Herodotus

 "Failure is only postponed success as long as courage
'coaches' ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of
victory." ---Herbert Kaufman 

"Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by
well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual
freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed
with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind." ---Henry Grady Weaver

 "If it weren't for lawyers, we wouldn't need them." ---A. K. Griffin  

"The minute you read something that you can't understand, you can almost be sure it was drawn up by a lawyer." ---Will Rogers

 “Leadership is based on a spiritual quality:
the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow”. --- Vince Lombardi

 A pox on all zealots, whatever their ilk - Shakespeare

"Time flies like an arrow; the days and nights alternate as fast as a weaver's shuttle."
  --- Chinese proverb 

May your Retirement
Be all you planned it to be,
May you enjoy every moment
Of being carefree;
May good luck and happiness
Replace worries and strife,
May this time prove to be
The best time of your life!
Best Wishes on Your Retirement

 "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack
of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather is a lack of will.
Winning isn't everything--but wanting to win is."  --Vince Lombardi

 "It is your attitude, not your aptitude that determines your altitude."   --- Zig Ziglar

"Do not follow where the path may lead. 
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" - Harold R. McAlindon

Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself". (Absurdum est ut alios regat, qui seipsum regere nescit.) Latin proverb

"In this world a man must either be an anvil or hammer" - Henry W. Longfellow

"We succeed only as we identify in life, or in war, or in anything else, a single overriding objective, and make all other considerations bend to that one objective". Dwight D. Eisenhower

"What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog" Dwight D. Eisenhower

 Love lives on forever in each memory and thought Of the special ones who meant so much and the happiness they brought.
Love lives on forever— it will never fade away— For, in our hearts, our loved ones are with us every day. Unknown Author
