Hold on to your ideals!

I am a bit tired tonight, need to head to bed. I have been getting ready for the demo that I am going to teach tomorrow at the quilt class. I am so excited, I truly love meeting all the new ladies. The world is filled with good people. I know that when you watch the news, you may doubt that, but there are a lot of great people in this world. So I will leave you tonight with this sweet and thought provoking poem. Good night dear friends!

Remember that ideals
are like stars up in the sky,
You can never really reach them,
hanging in the heavens high....
But like the mighty mariner
who sailed the storm-tossed sea,
And used the stars to chart his course
with skill and certainty,
You too can chart your course in life
with high ideals and love,
For high ideals are like the stars
that light the sky above....
You cannot ever reach them,
but lift your heart up high
And your life will be as shining
as the stars up in the sky.
By Helen Stiener Rice

" The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been kindness, beauty, and truth"   ~ Albert Einstein

" I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."                     ~ Anne Frank
