A selection of quotes and short poems found scattered among my grandmother’s papers. I am not bothering to look for sources for the unattributed this time.

There is no surprise more magical that the surprise of being loved! It is God’s finger on man’s shoulder

–Charles Morgan

Honesty is the world’s greatest labor-saving device.

–Dr. Henry Cohen

When you wake up, get up –
And when you get up, do something!


Sitting still and wishing
Makes no person great.
The good Lords sends the fishing,
But you must dig the bait.


Music is love in search of a word.
