The Kingdom of Man – Sept 2012

The kingdom of man

Our world is the world within,

Our life is the thought we take,

And never an outer sin

Can mar it or break.

Brood not on the rich manís land,

Sigh not for the miserís gold,

Holding in reach of your hand

The treasure untold.

That lies in the mines of heart,

That rest in the soul alone Ė

Bid worry and care depart,

Come into your own!

The only competition worthy of a wise man is with himself.

††††††††††† †Every man has three characters Ė That which he exhibits, that ††††††††† which he has, and that which he thinks he has.

A man should never be ashamed to say that he has been wrong,

††††††††† Which is but saying in other words that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††Alexander Pope

††††††††††† God has put something noble and good into every heart His hand created.††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††† Mark Twain††††

††††††††† Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive.

††††††††† One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
