I Will Seek Beauty All My Days
I will seek Beauty all my days
Within the dark chaos of a troubled world I will seek and find some Beauteous thing.
From eyes gone dim with weeping will shine a Light to guide me, and in Sorrow's Hour I shall behold a great High Courage.
I shall find the wonder of an infinite Patience, and a quiet Faith in coming Joy and Peace.
And Love will I seek in the midst of Discord, and find swift eager hands out-stretched in welcome.
I shall seek Beauty all my days, and in my quest I shall not be dismayed.

A setback is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. - Henry Ford
