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

The Wealth of Civility
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:
"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
With heart and soul and kindness of words
we would understand the true meaning of wealth
and that's poetiquejustis
For what shall it profit a man,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
