Today’s Positive Thought

Today’s Positive Thought is by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

All is in the Silence waiting to be brought

Forth to form and substance by the builder, Thought,

That is how God fashioned everything He wrought,

Everything you long for, in the Silence wait,

Yours the power to shape them either soon or late,

But be very careful how you form your fate.

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is a quote  from a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

For thoughts are things and their airy wings

   Are swifter than carrier doves.

They follow the law of the universe—

   Each thing must create its kind,

And they speed o’er the track to bring you back

   Whatever went out from your mind.

Poem on Goals

    One of my favorite poems/prose is by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, since I have been writing about goals this  poem on goals seemed to be appropriate.

One ship drives East and another drives West,

      With the selfsame winds that blow,

‘Tis the set of the sails

      And not the gales

That tells them where to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the winds of fate

    As we voyage along through life,

‘Tis the set of the soul

     That decides the goal

And not the calm or the strife.
