Kindness is The Word

--Description: 21st C, Unknown, Hope, Kindness--

"What is the real good?"
I asked in musing mood.

Order, said the law court;
Knowledge, said the school;
Truth, said the wise man;
Pleasure, said the fool;
Love, said the maiden;
Beauty, said the page;
Freedom, said the dreamer;
Home, said the sage;
Fame, said the soldier;
Equity, said the seer;

Spake my heart full sadly:
"The answer is not here."

Then within my bosom
Softly this I heard:
"Each heart holds the secret:
Kindness is the word."


Word of the Day: yoho \yoh-HOH\, interjection:
1. (used as a call or shout to attract attention, accompany effort, etc.)
1. to shout “yo-ho!”
Taking down a wheezy and tattered concertina, the greasy cook sang in a raucous tone a ditty he had composed. “Yoho, me hearties, hark t'me, pay 'eed now whilst I sing…"
-- Brian Jacques, The Rogue Crew: A Tale of Redwall, 2011

Quote of the Day: Remember you will not always win.
Some days, the most resourceful individual will taste defeat.
But there is, in this case, always tomorrow -
after you have done your best to achieve success today.
- Maxwell Maltz
