Food for Thought with a Poem from Shel Silverstein

Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child,

Listen to the DON’TS.

Listen to the SHOULDN’TS


the WON’TS.

Listen to the NEVER HAVES,

Then listen close to me…

Anything can happen, child.

ANYTHING can be,”

Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Doubts can make dreams and hopes feel like they aren’t worth reaching, make them lose their wings. To all, may we prove that they can be. Perhaps it’s a simple dream, perhaps it would take a hundred men and women. If you believe that it should come to be, make it come true. Shel Silverstein wants you to know that as long as you push aside the doubts, “anything can happen.”


Quotes about Believing

“But what really matters is not what you believe but the faith and conviction with which you believe…” (Knut Hamsun, Mysteries).

“If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way” (Roy T. Bennett).

A Quote – Times Worthwhile

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart (Martin Luther King, Jr.).
