I would like to share this as a thought for the New Year... Reflect...
(Paraphrase as read by BJS)
In the time of your life, live... Seek goodness everywhere, and when it is found, bring it out of its hiding place and let it be free and unashamed.
Discover in all things that which shines and is beyond corruption.
Be the inferior of no man, or of any men be superior. Remember that every man is a variation of yourself.
In the time of your life, live—so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.
-- William Saroyan
