You are beaten to earth?/ Well, well, what's that?/ Come up with a smiling
face,/ It's nothing against you to fall down flat/ But to lie there-that's
a disgrace.More Edmund Cooke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is not the weight of jewel or plate,
Or the fondle of silk or fur;
"Tis the spirit in which the gift is rich,
As the gifts of the Wise Ones were,
And we are not told whose gift was gold,
Or whose was the gift of myrrh.More Edmund Cooke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Back of the boy is Wilson,
Pledge of his high degree,
Back of the boy is Lincoln,
Lincoln and Grant and Lee;
Back of the boy is Jackson,
Jackson and Tippecanoe,
Back of each son is Washington,
And the old red, white and blue!More Edmund Cooke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

But maybe prayer is a road to rise,
A mountain path leading toward the skies
To assist the spirit who truly tries.
But it isn't a shibboleth, creed, nor code,
It isn't a pack-horse to carry your load,
It isn't a wagon, it's only a road.
And perhaps the reward of the spirit who tries
Is not the goal, but the exercise!More Edmund Cooke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
