Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own.
So many gods, so many creeds, so many paths that wind and wind while just the art of being kind is all the sad world needs.
With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays there let them sleep. Concern yourself with but today, Woo it, and teach it to obey Your will and wish. Since time began Today has been the friend of man But in his blindness and his sorrow, He looks to yesterday and tomorrow. You, and today a soul sublime, And the great pregnant hour of time, With God himself to bind the twain Go forth, I sayattain, attain With God himself to bind the twain.
