If Only ...
If only in our lives We can make magic real The
magical powers in
fantasies Magic that makes our world ideal Magic which grows lovely
stories And most of all the magic of love
If only in our lives We can live with care for Everyone, that together
gives Peace to the world. If people can just soften Those hearts made
of stone, Maybe they can put forth A bit more of their love And hear
the whispers Of the speaking truth.
If only in our lives We can find our dreams with our own courage And
shine our light beams Onto those who lacks bravery, Listen to what
other's hearts Are trying to say, and Tell others how you really feel
Before it's too late.
If only in our lives Peace always comes with victory For we don't need
victory when there's peace But we do need peace when there's victory.
If only in our lives We don't think of any if-only's And if only in our
lives The if only's of all if only's Can be made true. If only.
Two things are infinite:
the universe and human stupidity —
and I’m not sure about the universe.
“I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that
I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach
that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. I
possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I
can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can
humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response
that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a
child humanized or de-humanized.”
— Haim Ginott, 1990
New Dimensions of Youth Crime
The secret of eternal youth
— is arrested development!
is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful. A man who
gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when
viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats. "
— George Orwell
A friend is someone who loves you anyway.
