Borrowed Wisdom
Normally I am not given to posting other people’s work on my blog (aside from a little Knopfler). But someone at work sent me this and absolutely insisted that I put it up on my desktop and read it everyday. I wonder why? Maybe I should make it a point to flash my signature grin more at work! Its a short verse that has spoken more than the most verbose prose!
When I have looked life in the eye,
And grown calm and very coldly wise,
When I have realised that compromises wait
Behind each hardly opened gate
Then life would have given me the truth
And taken in exchange my youth
-Sarah Teasdale
