Live your “life” in the present moment as a “HERO” and leave your mark on the world. Act! Take Action! Be Active. Tell me not, in mournful numbers, life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are what they seem.
Life is real! Life is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, is our destined end or way; But to act, that each to-morrow find us farther than today.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting, and our hearts, though stout and brave, still, like muffled drums, are beating funeral marches to the grave.
In the world’s broad field of battle, in the bivouac of life, Be not like dumb, driven cattle! Be a hero in the strife! Trust no future, Howe’er pleasant! Let the dead past buy it’s seed! Act, -act in the living present! Heart within, and God O’er head! Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sand of time,; Footprints, that perhaps another, sailing o’er life’s solemn main, A florin and shipwrecked brother, seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then be up and doing, with a heart for any fate, still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait. It’s my brother birthday. God is INDEED FAITHFUL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AND TO NOVEMBER BABIES…….
