May the charming words of this lovely poem inspire you today.


--Description: 21st C., Chinmoy S., Encouragement, Hope--


Hope
Is kind.
Therefore
I mix with hope.
Hope
Is swift.
Therefore
I run with hope,
Hope
Is brave.
Therefore
I collect boundless strength
From hope.
Hope
Is sincere.
Therefore
I invite hope
To accompany me
To the Golden Shore.

Sri Chinmoy


--Did You Know: ChinMoy was an Indian spiritual teacher and philosopher who emigrated to the U.S. in 1964. An author, composer, artist and athlete, he was perhaps best known for holding public events on the theme of inner peace and world harmony.

--Word of the Day: deliquesce \del-ih-KWES\ , intransitive verb:
Meaning: 1. To melt away or to disappear as if by melting.
2. (Chemistry) To dissolve gradually and become liquid by attracting and absorbing moisture from the air, as certain salts, acids, and alkalies.
3. To become fluid or soft with age, as certain fungi.
4. To form many small divisions or branches -- used especially of the veins of a leaf.
Example: Now it's high summer, the very high point of the high season, and I've just struggled back from Santa Eulalia with the weekly shop, most of which has already deliquesced into an evil-smelling puddle in the back of the car.
(Paul Richardson, "A postcard from Paul Richardson", Independent, August 19, 1996)

--Quote of the Day: Hope calculates its scenes for a long and durable life; presses forward to imaginary points of bliss; and grasps at impossibilities; and consequently very often ensnares men into beggary, ruin and dishonor.
(Joseph Addison)
