quiet manWhilst doubters and begrudgers preen their feathers with their heads askew

I say God bless and do not envy them

My life in peace of mind, for I have I sailed the seven seas

Through storms where tides just come and go

For money never earned a man respect and does not prove that he is true


Look for the men who give to others, and do not say that they are great

They are the ones who do not try to shine in gilded gold . . .

Look for the men who understand the tongues in trees, that speak of man’s reality


“And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.”

~ William Shakespeare
