"On Children" - what Kahlil Gibran has to say...
Chapter 3 - On Children
And a woman who held
a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's
longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You give them your love but
not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies
but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which
you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows
are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness:
For even as He loves the
arrow that flies so He loves also the bow that is stable.

End " - what A. A. Milne has to say...
I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
I was Three,
I was hardly Me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
I was Five,
I was just alive.
But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever.
I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
By A. A. Milne.

My heart leaps up
when I behold
A Rainbow in the sky:
was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a Man;
So be it when I shall
Or let me die!

And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each
by natural piety
by William Wordsworth

I think not. Though, of course, I value your opinion! :-)
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,
Be kind anyway.

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for

More from 'The Invitation'...
If you can keep your head when all about you
theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt
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:.
(Now that is some famous inspirational poem, no?)
not stand at my grave and weep
by Mary Elizabeth Frye.
Do not stand
at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand
winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
from 'Do not stand at my grave and weep...'
