"My will is mine...I shall not make it soft for you." ― Aeschylus, Agamemnon

"Chess is life in miniature. Chess is a struggle, chess battles." ― Garry Kasparov

"After we have paid our dutiful respects to such frigid virtues as calculation, foresight, self-control and the like, we always come back to the thought that speculative attack is the lifeblood of chess." — Fred Reinfeld

"Age brings wisdom to some men, and to others chess." ― Evan Esar

"There is no jewel in the world comparable to learning; no learning so excellent both for Prince and subject, as knowledge of laws; and no knowledge of any laws so necessary for all estates and for all causes, concerning goods, lands or life, as the common laws of England." ― Sir Edward Coke

"Without integrity and honor, having everything means nothing." ― Robin Sharma

"I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of my own mind, and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want, and much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one, available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest." ― Andrew Carnegie

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

"We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us." ― Winston S. Churchill

Childhood Games
Judy Ponceby, Ohio Feb 2011


Girlfriends running, twirling, too.
Taking turns out in the sun.
Skip and hop across the board.
Leap over the marked one.


Red right foot,
Bodies blend.
Green left hand
Twist and bend
Blue left foot,
Over extend.
Yellow right hand
In a body pile, again.


Pawns in play,
Knights abound.
King in check,
Queens around.
Pieces falling one by one
Check and Mate is the sound.


Tag! You're It.
Running wild.
Laughing, screaming,
Swift little child.


Rope atwirling overhead.
Jump when its under.
Singsong chanting
Sounds like thunder.


Red men, Black men.
Jump on a diagonal.
King me, king me
Gonna jump a handful

Kick the Can

Running down the street.
Kicking that can.
Swarm of kiddies
Chasing past the man.

Hopscotch. Twister. Chess. Tag.
Checkers. Kick the Can. Jumprope.

Proverbs of Solomon 5
Avoiding Immorality

1My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

incline your ear to my insight,

2that you may maintain discretion

and your lips may preserve knowledge.

3Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey

and her speech is smoother than oil,

4in the end she is bitter as wormwood,

sharp as a double-edged sword.

5Her feet go down to death;

her steps lead straight to Sheol.

6She does not consider the path of life;

she does not know that her ways are unstable.

7So now, my sons, listen to me,

and do not turn aside from the words of my mouth.

8Keep your path far from her;

do not go near the door of her house,

9lest you concede your vigor to others,

and your years to one who is cruel;

10lest strangers feast on your wealth,

and your labors enrich the house of a foreigner.

11At the end of your life you will groan

when your flesh and your body are spent,

12and you will say, "How I hated discipline,

and my heart despised reproof!

13I did not listen to the voice of my teachers

or incline my ear to my mentors.

14I am on the brink of utter ruin

in the midst of the whole assembly."

15Drink water from your own cistern,

and running water from your own well.

16Why should your springs flow in the streets,

your streams of water in the public squares?

17Let them be yours alone,

never to be shared with strangers.

18May your fountain be blessed,

and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth:

19A loving doe, a graceful fawn—

may her breasts satisfy you always;

may you be captivated by her love forever.

20Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress,

or embrace the bosom of a stranger?

21For a man's ways are before the eyes of the LORD,

and the LORD examines all his paths.

22The iniquities of a wicked man entrap him;

the cords of his sin entangle him.

23He dies for lack of discipline,

led astray by his own great folly.

"Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart. Don't be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you. The chances are that they aren't paying any attention to you. It's your attention to yourself that is so stultifying. But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible. If you fail the first time then you'll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there's no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself." — Eleanor Roosevelt
