Nothing Greater Than Life
There is no greater possession than life.
No greater prize than life.
What greater gift have we received than life?
Life in the moment, and in all its moments.
More than money
let me be certain that I spend this life well and wisely.
Whatever bargains I may make
let me not under-rate the coin with which I barter, precious seconds.
But give me wisdom to know the folly
of treating life like money kept in the purse.
There is no greater wisdom than life.
No greater meaning than life.
What greater gift can we give than life?
Life in the rearing, and life in the rescuing.
Life, by the freedom of living it.
Life in its chances and opportunities.
The hopes and wishes of it.
Whatever else I give, let me give that.
Whatever else I take, let it not be that.
But give me wisdom to know that a gift given
cannot afterwards be owned by the giver.
There is no greater beauty than life.
No greater desire than life.
What greater possession do we have than life?
