Just some thoughts...
Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

And Yet to Prosper
As much as we need a prosperous economy,
we also need a prosperity of kindness and decency.
mid-15c., from O.Fr.
(14c.), from L.
"cause to succeed, render happy,"
To give what we have to another no matter what the cost to ourselves
To stop our ceaseless introspection long enough
to care about what someone else sees or feels
To search our souls for what we have to pass on- not what we want to receive
To make the world richer
without first asking for it to make us rich
The great radio star Gracie Allen said:
Brains, integrity, and force may be all very well, but what you need today is Charm.
Go ahead and work on your economic programs if you want to,
I'll develop my radio personality.
Perhaps if we all worked a little more on developing a
person - to -person
the brains, integrity and force that we honor so much
would actually do more good
and that's poetiquejustis
For what shall it profit a man,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
